Algebra Project in the Midwest is building community.

It is always heartwarming to see theory come to practice.

The Algebra Project is a 4-headed theoretical hydra that we have yet to tame at Franklin High, but we will.

  1. Project/Activity driven cooperative learning curriculum.
  2. The cohorts community organizing with parents, the surrounding community, and the Algebra Project network.
  3. The Young People's Project hiring our students as math literacy workers.
  4. Gathering data with the support of university researchers to publish more evidence that educational improvements can be made. We know what it takes.
