Subject: curriculum question

SRA McGraw-Hill has come out with an intervention program called "Number 
Worlds".  Has anyone used it?  Does anyone know how this program is 
different from other programs?  

I am especially interested if anyone knows if this program is the same one 
referred to in the book, “How Students Learn – Mathematics in the 
Classroom”, from National Academies Press.  There is a very long chapter 
where Number Worlds is successfully used with elementary students who were 
a couple of years below grade level.  

If you go to this site, 
http://newton.nap.edu/openbook/0309089492/html/index.html you can read the 
sections on line—I believe it is Chapter 6.
