I have studied this curriculum intensively as a potential math teacher. I have seen it in action in urban schools. I have taught it briefly. My daughter suffered through it two years ago.
There is a lot of mathematics in this curriculum. The curriculum is a rich source of ideas for teachers. Every potential math teacher should work through it. It is a poor choice for a high school curriculum for several reasons.
First, Core-Plus is a very, very wordy math curriculum. At risk students will not understand it. Nor will they work with texts that are this dense. As a very well educated and mathematically sophisticated parent, I had to struggle with the text to help my 14 year old daughter because it is so poorly written. The essence of mathematics is the precise use of language and I often became infuriated at how hard I had to work to figure out what they were trying to say.
Some students with very strong verbal skills and a good work ethic will do well, with Core-Plus without learning enough mathematics to succeed at the university level in the sciences. The assessments put a premium on busy work, written and oral communication skills and social skills. Mastering symbol manipulation to the point where a student is equiped to learn physics gets short shrift. On the other hand, Core-Plus will strengthen non-math skills for many students.
Most high school math teachers are not equipped to teach this curriculum well. Because the approach is almost exclusively problem solving, the interconnections between the different strands of mathematics are below the surface and often are just not there. The teacher must be skilled enough to bring them out, reinforce them through review and extra practice and supply the missing links when necessary.
This curriculum is deficient vis-a-vis the 2000 Standards in that there is an over-emphasis on data-analysis (statistics) and a serious underemphasis on symbol manipulation (algebra) algorithms and proof. The latest version of the NCTM standards corrects the many extremes and deficiencies in the 1989 standards and is far closer to a consensus of what mathematicians, teachers, educationists and psychologists believe are best practices in math education.
My daughter and all her friends hated Core-Plus passionately. She's no mathematician, but I find it so so tedious. There is no joy of discovery, no pleasure in mathematics itself in these books. The texts are ugly. There is no humor. I love Michael Serra's reform Geometry textbook because he thinks like a 13 year old, has a phenomenal sense of humor and is infectiously in love with math.
Core-Plus should not be used with heterogeneous classes in inner city schools because 75% or more of the students lack the requisite math skills and study skills. There are not enough students who are sufficiently competent to sustain the pace of the group work. These students, who have some hope of a college education, simply will not be prepared for serious study in any field that requires math skills.

Contemtorary Mathematucs in Context is a program that build on the theme of mathematics as sense-making. Through investigations of real-life contexts, students develop a rich understanding of important mathematics that makes sense to them and, in turn, enables them to make sense out of nes situations and problems. Yes, it enables them to think.
The materials are designed to implement the vision of high school mathematics portrayed in the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics "Standards" documents. The curriculum materials include thew following features:
Multiple Connected Strands (Algebra and Functions; Geometry and Trigonometry; Statistics and Probability; and Discrete Mathematics.)
Mathematical Modeling (including data collection, representation, interpretation, prediction, and simulation.)
Access to core mathematical topics for all students. Differences in students in performance and interest and be accomodated by the depth and level of abstraction, by the nature and degree of difficulty of applications, and by providing opportunities for student choice on homework tasks and projects.
Technology (Numerical, graphical, and programming link capabilities found on many graphing calculators are assumed and capitalized upon. These provide opportunities to emphasize multiple representations and to focus on mathematical thinking, rather than mere computation.)
Active Learning (Instruction and assessment practices are designed to promote mathematical thinking. Collaborative groups and individual work are used as students explore, conjecture, verify, evaluate, and communicate mathematical ideas.)
The curriculum promises to make mathematics accessible to a diverse student population. Developing mathematics each year along multiple strands nurtures the differing strengths and talents of students and simultaneously helps them to develop diverse mathematical insights. Developing mathematics from a modeling perspective permits students to experience mathematics as a means of making sense of data and problems that arise in diverse contexts. Engaging students in small groups to work together on tasks develops their ability to both deal with, and find commonality in, diversity of ideas. Using calculators as a means for learning and doing mathematics enables students to develop versatile ways of dealing with realistic situations and reduces the manipulative skill filter which has prevented large numbers of students from continuing their study of significant mathematics.
Furthermore, in cases where the mathematics departments or admissions offices have reviewed Contemporary Mathematics in Context, the courses have been approved as meeting the mathematics admission requirements of those intitutions. Many students have applied, been accepted and are succeeding in many colleges and universioties across the country.
Lastly, I have been teaching high school mathematics for 27 years and have seen many programs come and go. I have also heard others use the phrase "This too shall pass." The reform movement is the right movement for students in this country. We do not need to focus on a curriculum that is a mile wide and an inch thick. Contemporary Mathematics in Context provides the depth to allow students the opportunity to be able to think, not just process. I hope that this mathematics movement does not just "pass." I really wish that I would have written these texts. I believe in them and the curriculum embedded within. And so do my students!
