Sequence of Units in the CPMP
Four-year Program

The chart below provides titles of the units. Some units contain math content from more than one of the four areas: algebra and functions, statistics and probability, geometry and trigonometry, and discrete mathematics. For example, Course 2 Unit 2, Matrix Methods, is mainly considered a discrete mathematics unit, but it also contains algebra content. Unit Descriptions and Topics (PDF 284 KB) provides more detailed descriptions of each CCSS Edition unit and the topics covered.
