Title: Core-Plus Mathematics Project (CPMP)
Url: http://core-plusmath.org/
Publisher: Core-Plus Mathematics Project
Description: The Core-Mathematics Project (CPMP) involved four years of research, development, and evaluation in over 35 high schools in Alaska, California, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, South Carolina, and Texas. With funding from the National Science Foundation the project sought to develop student and teacher materials for "a comprehensive Standards-based three-year high school mathematics curriculum for all students, plus a fourth-year course continuing the preparation of students for college mathematics." The four-year curriculum replaces the traditional Algebra-Geometry-Advanced Algebra / Trigonometry-Precalculus sequence by teaching algebra and geometry every year while also introducing new topics such as statistics and discrete mathematics. The curriculum emphasizes mathematical modeling and applications and received the highest designation of "exemplary" from the U.S. Department of Education Expert Panel on Mathematics. Although the CPMP curriculum must be purchased from the publisher Glencoe / McGraw-Hill, sample materials and details about the curriculum, including approaches to assessment and evaluations of the curriculum are available online. The website describes features of the CPMP curriculum, overviews the mathematical content, and discusses issues for instructional design and implementation. Information on upcoming conferences and workshops, and other online articles are also available.
