Under a new state requirement, all eighth-graders will be assessed in algebra before moving on to high school. Lodi Unified is hoping that by using a tested and true curriculum that teaches math concepts early on, this feat won't be as difficult.

In July, the state Board of Education voted to adopt the governor's recommendation to require all middle school students be tested in algebra by the end of the eighth grade. This requirement is set to start in 2011, but districts across the state have balked at the cost of hiring more teachers to teach algebra, and the issue has even gone to court.
