Our district has recently adopted the Holt line of math books for grades 6-8 (last year adopted it for Algebra... maybe the other high school classes, though I am not sure). Today we spent all day setting up a pacing guide and making sure that we will teach all of our state standards. I was just wondering if anyone has experience with this series, and if you would be willing to share tips you have discovered with it, or warnings, insight, etc. I am looking forward to it, because our previous math series was Connected Math Project and our students were not learning much from it. They liked doing the little projects, but even with teacher directed portions, they wouldn't grasp the concept... Thanks in advance!
