# Core-Plus Mathematics: Contemporary Mathematics In Context, Course 2 – Interactive Student Edition (2008)

 35

"Core-Plus Mathematics", is a standards-based, four-year integrated series. Concepts from algebra, geometry, probability, and statistics are integrated, and the mathematics is developed using context-centered investigations. Developed by the Core-Plus Math Project at Western Michigan University with funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), "Core-Plus Mathematics" is written for all students to be successful in mathematics.
Reading age for native speakers: Middle and High School students
