|The March 2013
issue of the Journal for Research in Mathematics Education reports
a carefully-controlled study in which Core-Plus Mathematics students
performed significantly better on a Test of Common Objectives,
on a Problem Solving and Reasoning Test, and on the standardized
test, ITED Mathematics: Concepts and Problem Solving than did students
from publisher-produced, single-subject texts from Glencoe, McDougal
Littel, Holt (Kennedy et al), Holt (Schulz et al), and Prentice
The multi-year study followed as close as possible the recent recommendations on evaluating curricular effectiveness from the National Research Council.
|CPMP is pleased to announce their Core-Plus Mathematics Courses 1–4 Summer 2013 Implementation Workshops. Workshops will be held in Kalamazoo, MI from July 22–26. The registration form and lodging information are now posted; preliminary agendas will be posted as they become available.|

one of Education Week's 15 profiles on forward-thinking education
Duplin County Schools partners with the New Schools Project in North Carolina and has organized their high school mathematics courses around use of the Core-Plus Mathematics program to prepare students for future mathematics courses in their Early College degree program and to meet the North Carolina Integrated Mathematics Course of Study which is aligned to the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSS).
Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSS)
• Alignment of Core-Plus Mathematics: Course 1, Course 2, Course 3, and
Course 4: Preparation for Calculus with the CCSS
• A CCSS Pathway through Core-Plus Mathematics
|Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSS): Core-Plus Mathematics highest-rated three-year program for both the content standards and the standards for mathematical practices.|
|See Transition to College Mathematics and Statistics for a new fourth-year course for college-bound students whose intended program of study does not include calculus.|
