Fellow Subscribers --

A teacher called me this morning at Michigan Gateways (the Television
Program for Teachers of Math and Science), looking for leads on "a new,
strong math program to adopt" for K-2. He told me that there is quite a bit
of "divisiveness" in his district now over what to adopt, and he would like
to know, "What are some of the best things out there?"

Since the Michigan Gateways series of programs frequently turns to the NCTM
standards as a point of reference as we examine math and science reform, we
can assume that he leans toward the NCTM-oriented side of the division
(simplifying--as we are all well aware at the moment, there are many sides
and no clear dividing lines). It was my impression that he was looking for
a program that he could make the best case for. Do you have any suggestions
that I could pass on to him as programs that he may wish to investigate?

I do have sources here at Michigan State University that I have put this
same question to, but I am also very interested in suggestions from the
NCTM-L subscribers.

Thanks for any help you can provide.
