## Math in Action

The Florida-State-Assessment (FSA) in Algebra 1 is called a ‘high-stakes test’ because students need to pass the exam in order to graduate. The FSA’s for Geometry and Algebra 2 are replacing the End-of-Course Exams (EOC) as the cumulative final and will help students by measuring gains and progress. However, we think Algebra is bigger than just a test; algebra is a gateway subject–succeeding in algebra will help you succeed in higher level math courses, which in-turn opens the doors to exciting opportunities and careers.
