Components of Algebra Nation
Algebra Nation is a collaborative initiative aimed at helping students across Florida conquer the Algebra End-of-Course Exam (EOC), a computer-based exam all algebra students need to pass for graduation credit.
Last year, 50% of high school students who took the Algebra EOC failed. In high needs schools, the results were even more alarming – over 80% of students did not pass the test. In response, the University of Florida partnered with Study Edge, an innovative educational technology company, to create Algebra Nation. Algebra Nation is a result of ongoing collaboration among teachers, professors, administrators, parents, and students. Algebra Nation provides a platform for everyone to share his or her best ideas and practices.

Video Content Review Sessions
Algebra Nation videos are organized into 11 easy sections. Each section contains 3-4 video lessons. These effective, entertaining videos feature lessons taught by nationally renowned Study Experts – young, energetic pros – and dynamic algebra teachers from throughout Florida. Each lesson has two corresponding videos – one, taught by a male study expert and the other taught by a female. We’ve found that students will often gravitate towards one teaching personality over another, and we wanted to offer that choice for students!
