Mathematics in Context is the American version of the celebrated Netherlands middle-school mathematics program that is regarded world-wide as one of, if not the best, math teaching systems in the world for nearly four decades now.
See: http://www.newsweek.com/best-schools-world-200968
It emerged out of a National Science Foundation grant to the University of Wisconsin--Madison & the Freudenthal Institute at the University of Utrecht, the Netherlands.
As usual the back-to-basics and common-core folks have completely misunderstood these more creative, student-centered curriculums or simply can't comprehend or implement them correctly (as with the Seattle School District and "Connected Math").
--This is a great way to enhance your conventional math program or even revolutionize it if you teach at some private school that gives you the freedom to choose your own curriculum.

This set includes the Teacher Resource and Implementation Guide, 12 teacher guides and 24 of the 40 total student texts. Since this particular edition is no longer in print you should feel completely free to make copies from this set. The curriculum covers number (6 different teacher guides / 10 different student texts), algebra (3 teacher guides / 5 student texts) , geometry (1 teacher guide / 7 student texts, and statistics (2 teacher guides / 3 student texts) strands for grades 5 through 9. Each teacher guide and/ or student text is titled differently and covers an original topic within each strand. Total: 12 teacher editions / 25 student books. {@$700 at current prices--$36 for each teacher edition and $9.95 for each student book.}
