Intensified Algebra

Intensified Algebra (IA) is a partnership of UIC’s Learning Sciences Research Institute, the Charles A. Dana Center at the University of Texas, and Agile Mind Inc., an education technology company. IA is a curriculum intervention designed to target our country’s most at-risk high school students—those who enter high school significantly behind in mathematics but who face the more rigorous mathematics graduation requirements that are increasingly a part of our states’ policies.

Funding for development of Intensified Algebra has been provided by the National Science Foundation, the Searle Fund of the Chicago Community Trust, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and the Carnegie Corporation.
