Programs for High School Mathematics and Science
The Dana Center/Agile Mind high school programs equip teachers with comprehensive resources to support their instruction, formative assessment, testing, and professional development needs for an entire academic year.
Our mathematics programs provide a comprehensive, vertically aligned high school curriculum through Advanced Placement Calculus and Statistics. Our Biology program supports a first course in high school biology.
The programs appear in a “blended” format, with some materials online and others in print. Throughout the lessons, homework, and formal assessments, students work on rich tasks that ensure their learning reflects the rigor of the standards, applying the mathematics they are learning to multiple real-world situations and contexts.
Lessons are designed to support development of deep conceptual understanding, and the use of multiple representations supports differentiation for diverse learners. Strategic, deliberate practice and review enable students to attain the fluencies and procedural skills required by the standards.
Whether you follow a traditional or integrated pathway, the first three courses in our high school mathematics sequence provide a strong foundation for the courses that follow. For students entering their first high school math course 1-3 years behind, we offer an extended-period intervention program, Intensified Algbra I, desiged to repair students’ gaps and help them achieve their Algebra I credit within a single academic year.
The high school mathematics programs have been recognized as being of the highest quality by rigorous review processes, including those of EdReports.org, the Lousiana Department of Education, the Texas Education Agency, and Learning List.
