Hi Dave, There are two sites on which to find opposing views of which to books to use and why. It seems that they are very political, but they are also comprehensive within their philosophies. Mathematically Correct http://www.mathematicallycorrect.com and Mathematically Sane http://mathematicallysane.com After viewing the two sites I think you might conclude that Mathematically Correct would probably recommend what you are using now, the Saxon series. So, you might find it more interesting to look at what the resources Mathematically Sane lists for a contrast to what you are currently using. This page, in particular, might be useful: http://mathematicallysane.com/links/nsfprojects.asp I noticed that your email address is from Temple University. The Math Forum is now part of the School of Education at Drexel University in Philadelphia. Perhaps we are neighbors? >I was wondering if anyone can give me information about math programs for >HS curriculum.
