Abstract: © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2017. Traditional high school mathematics curricula in the United States devote 2 years almost exclusively to development of student proficiency in the symbolic manipulations required for solving algebraic equations and generating equivalent algebraic expressions. However, recent design experiments have shown that a focus on functions, mathematical modeling, and computer algebra tools enables effective integration of algebra with the other core strands of high school mathematics.
