Math (6 - 8)

Connected Math Program At A Glance

  • Is organized around important mathematical ideas
  • Develops deep understanding of important ideas
  • Embeds ideas in carefully selected and sequenced problems, to develop a coherent, connected curriculum (Development of CMP)
  • Makes rich connections across problems, investigations from grade to grade (Mathematics Content)
  • Provides ongoing practice and assessment for important concepts, related skills, and algorithms (Components)
  • Supports inquiry instruction and learning with an instructional model based on findings from recent cognitive research. (Teaching CMP)
  • Supports teacher learning of both content and pedagogical strategies with extensive teacher guides (Teaching CMP)
  • Meets the needs of all students to grow in their ability to reason effectively, using different representations (Differentiated Instruction).

CMP helps students and teachers develop understanding of important mathematical concepts, skills, procedures, and ways of thinking and reasoning, in number, geometry, measurement, algebra, probability and statistics. The overarching goal of CMP is to have all students reason and communicate proficiently in mathematics. They should have knowledge of and skill in the use of the vocabulary, forms of representation, materials, tools, techniques, and intellectual methods of the discipline of mathematics, including the ability to define and solve problems with reason, insight, inventiveness and proficiency.
