The sample material from Unit 8 is the final lesson of the unit, called the "Looking Back" lesson. Each unit in the Contemporary Mathematics in Context program ends with a "Looking Back" lesson. This lesson is intended to provide students with tasks that encourage them to look back at the unit as a whole. Students have the opportunity to pull together, apply, and communicate the mathematical concepts and methods they have developed while studying the particular unit. Reading the final unit Checkpoint of Space Geometry (on page 576) gives one a synopsis of the mathematical ideas covered in this unit.
Throughout the curriculum, interesting problem contexts serve as the foundation for instruction. As lessons unfold around these problem situations, classroom instruction tends to follow a common pattern as elaborated under Instructional Design.
