Discovering algebra: An investigative approach

Publication Type:



Key Curriculum Press, Emeryville, CA, p.*(Note: Frank Aviles named as one of the editorial consultants) (2002)


Discovering Algebra integrates the traditional algebra curriculum with statistics, data analysis, functions, discrete mathematics, geometry, probability, and trigonometry. Students work with real-world situations and applications where investigations precede the introduction of formulas and expressions. (Technology is also richly integrated into the curriculum.)

(At the 39th annual Distinguished Achievement Awards (2002) the Association of Educational Publishers (AEP) named Key Curriculum Press the winner of the coveted “Best Children’s Instructional Materials” award for its breakthrough curriculum, Discovering Algebra: An Investigative Approach.)
