Algebra Readiness, SRA
About the Program
Algebra Readiness gives students a full-year comprehensive curriculum for the fundamentals of Algebra I.
- Explicit instructions with a variety of activities and strategies to introduce concepts, and build skills and understanding
- Assessment options to evaluate student proficiency and inform instruction
- Wide variety of teaching tools, including electronic tools and online support
Every lesson in SRA Algebra Readiness has two versions: A and B. If students grasp the concept using the A version, they can move on to the next lesson. But if they are struggling, the B version offers a reintroduction and further development and practice, ensuring that teachers have the resources to address student needs.
SRA Algebra Readiness begins by developing the foundational concepts in number sense, basic skills, and rational numbers. This includes fractions, decimals, and percents that underlie algebraic understanding. With the completion of Algebra Readiness, students who previously have not been successful in mathematics will have mastered the foundational skills and pre-algebraic concepts needed for any Algebra I course.
SRA Algebra Readiness units address: Whole numbers and operations, rational numbers, operations on rational numbers, symbolic notation/equations and functions, the coordinate plane and graphing, and algebra.

- Research for Algebra Readiness: Executive Summary
The following report is a brief summary of the literature base for Glencoe’s Algebra Readiness with additional information about how the program meets California Mathematics Standards. The full report can be found in The Research Base for Algebra Readiness, which is an extension of a paper developed in February of 2007 "Research Base of Effective Mathematics Instruction" by Dr. Rosemary Papa.
- Research Base for Algebra Readiness
This document is an extension of a paper developed in February of 2007 "Research Base of Effective Mathematics Instruction" by Dr. Rosemary Papa. That paper was an update of an earlier publication created by Interactive Educational Systems Design, Inc. on behalf of Macmillan/McGraw-Hill. The update incorporated new research findings and references through January 2007. This paper extends those studies to an Algebra Readiness program.
- National Assessment of Title 1 Final Report
This federal Title 1 implementation study evaluated the impact of 4 widely used reading curricula on student reading achievement. Specifically, the researchers measured the impact of the reading curricula on measures of students' word-level reading skills and reading comprehension skills.
