Insights Into Algebra 1: Teaching for Learning is a production of Thirteen/WNET New York. Copyright 2004, The Annenberg Foundation. All rights reserved.

A major American cultural and educational institution for nearly four decades, Thirteen/WNET supplies more than one-third of all primetime programs aired on PBS, including acclaimed cultural, science, and public affairs series and specials. The award-winning Children's and Educational Programming group is a leading and innovative provider of programming for a variety of projects, from teacher professional development to instructional television and interactive multimedia. Broadcast series that further the station's educational mission include the daily animated PBS Kids math program Cyberchase, the history series for families Freedom: A History of US, ZOOM Local/National, What's Up in the Environment/Technology/Factories?, and In the Mix specials. Many projects promote implementation of national and state education standards. These include The Expanding Canon: Teaching Multicultural Literature in High School, Science ... Simply Amazing, Learning Science Through Inquiry for Annenberg Media, and PBS TeacherLine, Mathline, and Scienceline.

Thirteen is also a trusted source of Web-based content for educators. Thirteen Ed Online, an award-winning Web site that features classroom materials, resources and support for teachers, and professional development workshops, reaches thousands of teachers, teachers-in-training, administrators, and others involved in pre-K-12 instruction.
