You got a very good description of the Chicago Math program from
Marielouise, particularly for secondary.  I've taught the elementary level
now for 5 years in grades 1-5.  The program was funded by among other
entities the NSF. Besides being called Chicago Math , the elem. component is
known as Everyday Math.

It is an exciting program that takes a real life  approach to math.  The
students are challenged to extend themselves and find alternative solutions
to problems.  The curriculum takes a spiral approach rather than a straight-
line unit approach.  If you have more questions, feel free to send them in
or call the 800 number Marielouise gave you.
