Introduction Algebra is a universal theme that runs through all of mathematics and is important in nearly every aspect of the workplace. Algebraic thinking is a necessity for the intelligent consumer of goods and information. Algebraic ideas continue to be a strand that runs through the K 8 North Carolina Mathematics Standard Course of Study ( see E 14). In 1991 the North Carolina State Board of Education designated Algebra 1 as one of three units of mathematics required for high school graduation. The Resources for Algebra document was originally offered as a culmination to state wide staff development in algebra following the release of NCTM’s Principles and Standards for School Mathematics ( 2000) and an opportunity for teachers to examine the 1992 Algebra 1 Standard Course of Study more critically. With the adoption of a new 9 12 North Carolina Mathematics Standard Course Study for the fall of 2006, it was imperative that the Resources for Algebra document reflect changes in that curriculum. Resources for Algebra presents Algebra 1, wherever possible, as calculator assisted and activity or application centered. Teachers should feel free to modify, reorder, and/ or rewrite any or all of the ideas and activities. This is a document that teachers can build upon and remake to fit their classroom. It is a good model for a staff development activity within a school or school district. Using a similar format, teachers can create their own entries and share their resources in a similar document. Problems and activities are correlated with the Algebra 1 Standard Course of Study in the Goals and Objectives section ( G 1 – G 43).
