The latest initiative from The NROC Project, Developmental English is designed to help learners striving to meet college entrance requirements. The course integrates and compresses the standard developmental English curriculum— reading comprehension, writing, vocabulary building, grammar, punctuation and usage skills—and allows learners to accelerate into college-credit courses. This sequence enables learners to make predictions about their reading, analyze rhetorical structures, build vocabulary, and improve writing mechanics.

Developmental Math NROC’s Developmental Math Program is designed to be used with students striving to meet college entrance requirements. This multimodal program allows learners to create their own pace and path through developmental mathematics. Each learner may begin a unit by taking an adaptive preassessment that directs them to a customized path through the content needed to close their proficiency gaps. The program offers video, audio, interactive simulations, puzzles, and other instructional approaches that engage a variety of learning styles and attitudes. Topically organized, this program offers flexible modules that address concepts and skills taught in the traditional developmental math sequence of Arithmetic, Beginning and Intermediate Algebra. In keeping with AMATYC's proposal for a new developmental mathematics, this program includes topics that provide a high-level, basic introduction to Statistics, Geometry and Trigonometry.

Algebra 1 - Semester 2

Welcome to Algebra I—An Open Course. This yearlong (two-semester) course is designed for learners taking algebra for the first time, as well as those looking for an alternative method of learning algebra. This course assumes learners have an understanding of both pre-algebra and basic arithmetic.

Algebra I—An Open Course begins with a basic description of algebra, explains the rules and conventions that apply to algebra, and then demonstrates the power of thinking in a new and abstract way. Each lesson shows how algebra helps to explain the world around us, and how algebra is a practical tool for solving problems encountered in school, at work and in everyday problems.

This course covers the concepts, strategies, and skills of solving linear equations, functions and patterns; analyzing and graphing linear equations; function and relations; analyzing, solving and graphing linear inequalities; systems of linear equations and inequalities; radical expressions; polynomials; factoring; quadratic functions; rational expressions and equations; logical reasoning and number sets; and probability.
