Welcome to the CorePlus Mathematics Site!
The CorePlus Mathematics
Project (CPMP) has completed a significant revision of its internationallike,
fouryear high school mathematics program. The researchbased curriculum
materials are the product of iterative cycles of design, development,
fieldtesting, and refinement over more than 20 years with support,
in part, from the National Science Foundation.
The new Common Core State Standards (CCSS) edition of CorePlus Mathematics builds
on the strengths of previous editions that were cited as Exemplary by
the U.S. Department of Education Expert Panel on Mathematics and Science
and by the BusinessHigher Education Forum as one of 32 education
programs (across all subject areas) that works to ensure college
and career readiness.
Key features of the CCSS
Edition include:

Strong
alignment with both the CCSS mathematical practices and
content expectations

Algebra
and functions, geometry and trigonometry, along with statistics
and probability each year within coherent and connected
units

Problembased,
inquiryoriented, and technologyrich

Emphasis
on reasoning and sensemaking, realworld
applications, and mathematical modeling

Studentcentered
investigations promoting active learning, teamwork, and
communication

Integrated
use of CPMPTools software and graphing calculators
in each course

Course
4, Preparation for Calculus, for STEMoriented students

An alternative
fourthyear course, Transition to College Mathematics
and Statistics, for collegebound students whose intended
program of study does not require calculus

Mathematics and the Implementing CorePlus Mathematics guide to aid in your review
and/or implementation of the program.
