Subject: Re: Middle School texts

I suggest you get your hands on the Connected Mathematics Project. It was an 
NSF project and has been recently published. See:


"The Connected Mathematics Project was funded by the National Science 
Foundationto develop a complete mathematics curriculum for the middle grades. 

This curriculum is devoted to developing student knowledge of mathematics 
that is rich in connections - connections among the various topic strands of 
the subject, connections between mathematics and its applications in other 
disciplines, connections between the planned teaching/learning activities and
the special aptitudes and interests of middle school students, and 
connections between the preparation developed by elementary school 
mathematics and the goals of secondary school mathematics."
