Both traditional and integrated high school mathematics curricula have their strengths and weaknesses, and the author describes a middle path which is a hybrid of the two, offering the best of both systems. Each branch of math is studied in each year, but all the algebra is grouped together, then the geometry, then probability and statistics. The author and fellow teachers wrote their school's own electronic texts. Designed for classroom interactive whiteboards, the texts are available to students electronically and online. Issues in writing, implementing, and evaluating the texts are discussed.
