Algebra 1

This Leveled Pacing Chart is provided as a guide to help you customize your
course and to provide for differentiated instruction.

The suggested number of days for each chapter is based on a traditional
45-minute class period and on a 90-minute block period. The total of 160
days of instruction leaves time for assessments, projects, assemblies, or other
special days that vary from school to school.
