Press here to go to the site for Mathematics in Context (MiC) itself. It includes outlines, sample problems from the curriculum, and more. MiC was developed at the University of Wisconsin with the cooperation of those brilliant Dutch at the Freudenthal Institute. A total of about 40 units in fifth through eighth grade are in field test and production as of Fall 1995.

But suppose you're using MiC and you want supplementary materials? Use problems from United We Solve!
