Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2

One Voice from Kindergarten through Algebra 2

Written by renowned authors, Dr. Ron Larson and Dr. Laurie Boswell, Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 are a true extension of the Big Ideas Math: Modeling Real Life K-8 series, creating one cohesive voice from kindergarten through Algebra 2.

STEM Connections

Featuring National Geographic Explorers

Students meet a National Geographic Explorer at the beginning of each chapter to learn how they apply mathematics in their profession with an Everyday Explorations video.

Throughout each chapter, students develop their mathematical skills by following the Explorer’s research and creating STEM connections. This culminates in an end-of-chapter Performance Task to keep students connecting math to the real world.

Spotlight on STEM Webinar Series

Join Big Ideas Learning and National Geographic Learning for an exclusive webinar series with three of the National Geographic Explorers featured in the Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 program. Each Explorer will give attendees a detailed look at their fieldwork and how they use mathematical concepts every day in their research.

Highest-Impact Teaching Strategies

Many of the things we do as educators have a positive effect on student learning, but which ones have the greatest impact? The Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 program purposefully integrates five key strategies proven to have the highest impact on student achievement.

In his Visible Learning research, Professor John Hattie identified more than 250 influences on student learning and developed a way of ranking them. He conducted meta-analyses and compared the influences by their effect size — the impact the factor had on student learning.
