Recently, 25 middle school and high school teachers in the Arlington Central School District finished an electronic textbook (EText) for our introductory Algebra course. This effort was named "The Arlington Algebra Project." The EText is comprised of approximately 120 lessons and associated homeworks that, we believe, robustly cover the NYSED standards for Integrated Algebra 1.
We have placed this EText on CD's. Included are both MS Word and Adobe PDF files for all lessons and homeworks. We now plan to distribute it for free to interested districts. We have copyrighted the EText in order to keep it free to the public.
This EText was carefully developed over the span of two years using the Understanding by Design curriculum model (Wiggins and McTighe). We are currently using it with approximately 700 8th and 9th grade students. So far, we are pleased with its quality and its ability to integrate graphing calculator technology into algebraic instruction. Because the text comes in Word files, it is easily modified for various purposes(enrichment, I.E.P.'s, etc.).
I have attached a few of the lessons files to this post. Interested districts can email me for a copy of the EText. I do ask that districts limit themselves to one CD because it is easily copied to multiple computers and their are some associated costs with producing the CD's. Anyone who is interested in receiving a copy, please email me and include the following:
(1) Your name (2) The district/school/organization you work for (3) A physical address that I can send the CD to
Arlington is giving this EText away for free because we believe that by making resources easily available to everyone who wants them will give teachers the time to become more creative in their activities and assessments without having to worry about the day to day lessons and worksheets.
Sincerely,
Kirk Weiler Editorinchief The Arlington Algebra Project Arlington High School LaGrangeville, NY 12540
