Big Ideas Math Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 was developed with the Common Core Standards for Mathematics and uses the Standards for Mathematical Practice as its foundation. The program was written by renowned authors Dr. Ron Larson and Dr. Laurie Boswell and features cutting-edge technology to support the curriculum.
Big Ideas Math has been systematically developed using learning and instructional theory to ensure the quality of instruction. Students gain a deeper understanding of math concepts by narrowing their focus to fewer topics at each grade level. The program incorporates chapter learning targets and success criteria to put the focus on student learning, making the learning visible to teachers and to the students themselves. Students master content through inductive reasoning opportunities, engaging explorations that provide deeper understanding, concise stepped-out examples, rich, thought-provoking exercises, and a continual building on what has been previously taught.
