A Contextual Approach to Algebra 1

CORD Applied Mathematics

The mathematics modules that laid the groundwork for contextual teaching in the United States have gotten
a facelift! In response to a request from educators in the state of Washington, CORD Applied Mathematics
has undergone a complete revamp. CORD Mathematics: A Contextual Approach to Algebra 1, takes 21 individual
units and combines them into a 4-volume, year-long algebra 1 course. The good news is all the references
and materials have been updated. Better yet, the hands-on, real-world based problem solving that made
applied mathematics so successful remains intact!

Contact us today and see for yourself how the nation’s leading experts in contextual teaching have perfected the ideals of Common Core.
