Virginia Algebra I A/B
PLATO Course Virginia Algebra I is a completely re-designed course that offers 100% alignment to the Virginia Standards of Learning. The specific standard alignment for each lesson is visible to both educators and students. In addition to the emphasis on alignment, the lessons in the new course are designed to be shorter in length than lessons of previous versions, offering focused exploration of topics to make concepts more digestible for students. One new feature to support student mastery is the addition of practice questions included with each lesson, including technology-enhanced items and explanations to assist students in their understanding of the concepts. Other features include worksheets for practice and guided notes to help students record key takeaways as they move through the tutorial. The course is also built around student engagement, with more interactive lessons and videos that work through examples and model problem-solving skills. This fresh new look and feel for the course was inspired by educator feedback. Educators were also involved in the course at the design-level, as many unit activities, worksheets, and video scripts were written by current algebra classroom teachers. Virginia Algebra I reflects our commitment to standards alignment and putting the needs of educators and students first in all aspects of course design.
