<No, I don't really think so. At our school we're using something called Tech
Prep from CORD in Texas. I think it's good stuff, very hands on, lots of labs
(as they call them). And it synchs very well with Perkins Grant stuff
(vocational training).>

Dan - we field tested the applied math stuff from CORD last year and on the
whole we were very disappointed with it. The activities were fun, but we
didn't think the mathematics taught was very significant. Many times the
students went through rather involved activities (recipe-style) for very
little math pay-off. The time involved did not seem worth the amount of
mathematical thinking that took place. I'd be interested in others
experiences with CO"RD.
