Walch has been working closly with Georgia educators for many years to develop materials that are aligned to Georgia standards, support teachers and help students succeed in math classes.
Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE)
We are pleased to announce that our GSE Algebra I, Geometry and Algebra II resources are available for the 2017–2018 school year. These teacher and student materials are aligned to Georgia Standards of Excellence and were developed from the start with the guidance and feedback from Georgia educators.
CCGPS Coordinate Algebra
The CCGPS Coordinate Algebra Program is a complete set of teacher and student materials developed around the Common Core Georgia Performance Standards (CCGPS) and the Coordinate Algebra Frameworks, Curriculum Map, and Teacher’s Guide. The course design has benefited from direct input from Georgia teachers.
Topics are built around accessible core curricula, ensuring that Coordinate Algebra is useful for striving students and diverse classrooms. This program realizes the benefits of exploratory and investigative learning and employs a variety of instructional models to meet the learning needs of students with a range of abilities.

CCGPS Analytic Geometry
The CCGPS Analytic Geometry Program has been organized to coordinate with the CCGPS Analytic Geometry Frameworks and Curriculum Map, including the Updated Frameworks released July 1, 2013.
Each lesson includes activities that offer opportunities for exploration and investigation. These activities incorporate concept and skill development and guided practice, then move on to the application of new skills and concepts in problem-solving situations. Throughout the lessons and activities, problems are contextualized to enhance rigor and relevance.
CCGPS Advanced Algebra
The CCGPS Advanced Algebra Program is a complete set of materials developed around the Common Core Georgia Performance Standards (CCGPS) and the Advanced Algebra Frameworks, Curriculum Map, and Program Overview. Topics are built around accessible core curricula, ensuring that the CCGPS Advanced Algebra Program is useful for striving students and diverse classrooms.
This program realizes the benefits of exploratory and investigative learning and employs a variety of instructional models to meet the learning needs of students with a range of abilities.
The CCGPS Advanced Algebra Program includes components that support problem-based learning, instruct and coach as needed, provide practice, and assess students’ skills. Instructional tools and strategies are embedded throughout.
What teachers are saying...
"I am truly enjoying teaching from the Walch Coordinate Algebra text. I have never found a textbook that matches the Georgia state standards so well. It seems to be tailored to fit our curriculum. The Walch materials are also easily differentiable. This book is usable from accelerated to support classrooms."
- Laura Blair, Math Teacher, Southeast Bulloch High School
"Walch has created the only textbook that truly follows the standards. I have looked at every book available to me and they all simply rearranged the old texts to match up, but did not add or remove anything to ensure that all standards are met. Using the Coordinate Algebra text has made my job so much easier! The chapters are organized in the same order as the CCGPS for Georgia. The Teacher’s Edition even provides a timeline so that I know when it is appropriate to pull in the state’s tasks. The electronic versions of the student edition and teacher’s edition have been a huge help, as well!"
- Heather Lloyd, Math Teacher, Hart County
We are pleased to offer additional high school math resources to Georgia, listed below:
Coordinate Algebra Station Activities for CCGPS
The Coordinate Algebra Station Activities for CCGPS is a collection of hands-on, problem-solving activities to provide students with opportunities to practice and apply the math skills and concepts they are learning in their Coordinate Algebra class.
You may use these activities to complement your regular lessons or in place of your regular lessons, if students have the basic concepts but need practice.
