ab: Describes Mathematics in Context, a middle-level mathematics curriculum
developed by researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the
University of Utrecht, in the Netherlands. Instead of proceeding from a
generalization to specific examples, the math originates in real
problems; conversely, the mathematics learned is used to solve problems
in practical situations. Five program principles are discussed. (ERIC)
