Algebra I Learning Contract:
Term 1- “Solving Linear Equations” Unit
Based On: Glencoe Mathematics: Algebra 1

Essential Curriculum Indicators

MA.ALG.10.10 Solve equations in one variable

Teacher Directions for Implementing Learning Contract

1) Pre-assess students on indicators for the “Solving Linear Equations” Unit.

2) Identify and document students who have demonstrated “mastery” on each indicator/section.
Recommendation: Mastery = 85%.

3) Copy and prepare a contract for each compacted student. On learning activities chart,
indicate section(s) where the student has demonstrated mastery. Reminder: Compacted
students will be excused from large group instruction for these sections. During this time,
students will complete the alternative learning activities as indicated in the chart.

4) Based on the areas of student mastery, prepare copies of enrichment materials from the
Glencoe teacher resource kits.

5) Since compacted students have demonstrated mastery on specific indicators, they should be
excused from the class work and homework related to teacher-directed instruction on those
indicators. Instead, grades for compacted students should be based on the alternative
learning activities.

Management Tips
 Store worksheets and/or stapled packets in labeled folders for each section.
 Copy on cardstock and/or laminate the worksheets that may be reused.
 The Science and Math Labs require the preparation of materials and workspace.
Consider recruiting a resource teacher, mentor or other responsible volunteer to work
with compacted students for these investigations.
