I'm seeking the textbooks that were released in the 1960's call Unified Modern Mathematics. I'm aware 3 parts of the course exist online but I would like to use them in hard copy form. I find these books highly intuitive if used right. Also, Archive.org has some courses but not all 6. Wikipedia mentions that the publisher Addison Wesley released hard copies. If anyone has any information on how to obtain these books, it would be much appreciated.

In order to help you, we should know which country you are from. In Germany, the library of the MPI in Berlin seems to be the only library where you can find these books, see http://gso.gbv.de/DB=2.1/

Teacher College should have full sets of Unified Modern Mathematics, 1-6 course.

From the first pages of the textbook (FYI - Columbia is in New York City, US)-

  • $\begingroup$ Can you please expand on this a bit... what is UMM? Google is not helping me much... $\endgroup$ – Xander Henderson Apr 6 '19 at 8:05
  • $\begingroup$ @XanderHenderson Given the context, presumably "UMM" is "Unified modern mathematics" that the question is asking for. However, I have no idea is "Teacher college" and whether it is specific to a country, city, university, etc. $\endgroup$ – Tommi Apr 6 '19 at 10:36

    $\begingroup$ I did an internet search for "Teacher College" and couldn't identify it. What country or state is it in? $\endgroup$ – Joel Reyes Noche Apr 6 '19 at 11:21

    $\begingroup$ @BenCrowell et al: Teachers College, Columbia University exists! [I got my Ph.D. from TC CU in 2014...] I checked their library - I have access as a graduate - and, indeed, they have UMM books. Here is a link to the library: library.tc.columbia.edu $\endgroup$ – Benjamin Dickman Apr 7 '19 at 0:51
