**School On Line**

Today, schoolonline supports the teaching of the standard Algebra 1 curriculum. There are three interactive services for the algebra site - (1) an interactive lesson, (2) an interactive algebra reference engine, and (3) a service to investigate other algebra instruction sites. For the lessons, the student is presented with multiple choice problems, for each answer, the student is provided with feedback - if the wrong answer was selected, the student is provided with guidance on what he or she may have done wrong. The correct choice is rewarded with a congratulations and a detailed explanation on how to properly solve the problem. The schoolonline lessons can be performed by individual students or small work groups.

The algebra site also has a reference engine which the students can use while they solve the problems. The reference engine is a concise summary of the material written with some humor (at least I think so) and enthusiasm for the subject.

The algebra site has a service that allows students to investigate other Web Sites that provide instructional and enrichment materials.
