This project was a response to the changes in the Washington State math assessments for high school students. The creation of an exit exam for Washington State high school students and the expectation that they pass it to graduate has placed tremendous pressure on high schools that struggled with low passing rates on the Washington State math assessment. Algebra was the primary focus of this curriculum alignment and resources were created to better help Washington State students pass their Algebra End of Course exam. The project includes the process for constructing a course-pacing guide, a standards map, and integrated content and language objectives that were written for key lessons that specifically addressed state standards. Along with these components, there was a tool designed for students to monitor and track their own progress with the Algebra state standards. Historical information regarding Math standards is included to assist in setting the stage for the recent demand for higher standards.
