The concept is good: use real life applications to teach math, and allow children to discover things in their own way. The implementation is poor, using "real life" situations that make no sense to a child, and no explanation of what the student is supposed to accomplish, or why. I had to explain to my son why anyone would care about the perimeter and area of a hand if they made gloves. How on Earth would he know? He has never sewn anything in his life! (learning difference includes motor difficulties). It reminded me of the test question where you are supposed to estimate how many people fit in a queen size bed, and the answer from the people who actually slept 5 to a bed was "wrong". The person who writes these needs to get out in the real world.
Terrible program. ALEKS online math is better. There was a great program I saw once made with Powerpoint slides. Best Math tutor I ever saw, but I didn't catch the name of it. If I find it, I'll post it.
Wretched, awful stuff. Real-world people who have to use math--scientists, engineers, CFOs--simply do not think in the muddled, confused way promoted by this series.
Do not use this garbage; if you must, as all the miserable Seattle Public Schools middle schoolers--and their furious parents--have since 2007, then I sympathize, cos it's all I can do to not stick this dreck in the shredder after another dreary evening sitting with my kid puzzling over this cr*p. And more than one Seattle math teacher is angry over having to push this curriculum.
Same goes for the rest of the Connected Mathematics series like Variables and Patterns: Introducing Algebra (Connected Mathematics) etc. Just say no!
Before your kid's brains leak out her ears from Connected Mathematics, order here the classic old-school Algebra text Elementary Algebra by Hal Jacobs--really fine, and a needed antidote to CM garbage.
If you're already a mathematician who enjoys no instruction whatsoever along with mind-numbing ambiguity, this is the book for you.
If, however, you're a middle-schooler trying to learn and understand new math concepts, you could learn just as much by banging your head against a wall. Which, by the way, is probably what you'll end up doing out of frustration, as will your parents.
