Many of the same problems that plagued geometry last year also affected algebra 1. The largest of which (to me) was a lack of flow. Just like in geometry, it is easy to teach units in algebra and then only come back to them on a surface level, if at all. So with the new curriculum outline, I wanted to have some sort of logic to the unit order: one unit should hopefully flow to the next somewhat naturally, and later units should build on and use earlier units.
As always, feedback welcomed, and feel free to use and abuse to your heart’s content. If you do make improvements, I’d love to see them!
