Thanks to William P. Berlinghoff (wpberlin@COLBY.EDU) for posting the outline
for MATH Connections II (10th Grade) of the Hartford Alliance Project (CBIA
Education Foundation).

I teach at San Lorenzo High School, in San Lorenzo, California. We are
currently using the UC Davis "Change From Within" materials to replace
traditional Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II. While we are generally
happy with the changes this curriculum has helped us make (particularly in
terms of cooperative learning, use of manipulatives to teach algebra (at all
levels), portfolio and other alternative assessments, and use of graphing
calculators), we are always looking for alternatives. I would be very
interested to learn more about this project, especially in the areas I
mentioned above. Also: is there some way to examine a sample lesson or unit
(via e-mail or otherwise)? What are the goals of the project (for teachers
as well as for students)? What technology is embedded? Are groups an
integral or optional instructional strategy? What does assessment look like?
Is writing structured in?

Thanks!
Carlos Cabana,
San Lorenzo, CA
