As of 2015, there are several supplemental resources available on ClassZone.com for teachers and students to use along with the textbook. After loading the Algebra 1 page, students and teachers can click on a particular book chapter to access additional help and challenge problems, as well as fun activities related to the subject material, such as crossword puzzles, digital notecards and interactive games. Additionally, there are downloadable parent guides for each chapter. These guides provide parents with a list of goals for each lesson within the chapter, and the parents can ask their children to explain the mathematical concepts involved in each goal to ensure they have a firm grasp of the material. There are also problems in these guides that parents can use to work with their children.
