I'm (somewhat) familiar several reform texts. Foerster is from Key Curriculum Press; the North Carolina School for Science & Mathematics and Duke project is published by Janson. And the Harvard project text is published by Wiley, but I think People's Publishing distributes it for high school. I could get ISBN's if you really needed them.
