Williston Central School is also using Connected Math.
By the way, the message last week re: the newspaper article
suggesting the Connected Math Program is not good because it doesn't
include algorithms etc misses the point. No Published Program should
be viewed as a 1 to 1 fit with a school math curriculum. Any selected
program will need to be suplemented or modified in some way; texts
are a resource, not a curriculum. We teach students, not text books.
