CPMP-Tools is a suite of Algebra, Geometry, Statistics, and Discrete math software tools designed to support student investigation and problem solving in the CCSS Edition Core-Plus Mathematics texts.
CPMP-Tools includes four families of software:
Algebra & Functions—Algebra and Functions tools
include a spreadsheet and a computer algebra system (CAS) that produces
tables and graphs of functions, manipulates algebraic expressions, and
solves equations and inequalities.
The functionality of the CAS and other software tools increases with each course level.
Geometry & Trigonometry— Geometry and Trigonometry tools include an interactive drawing tool for constructing, measuring, manipulating, and transforming geometric figures, a simple object-oriented programming language for creating animation effects, and a set of custom apps for studying geometric models of physical mechanisms, tessellations, and special shapes.
Statistics & Probability— Statistics and Probability
tools include tools for graphic display and analysis of univariate and
bivariate data, simulation of probabilistic situations, and mathematical
modeling of quantitative relationships.
Software includes pre-loaded data sets appearing in the student texts.
Discrete Mathematics—Discrete Mathematics tools include tools for constructing, manipulating, and analyzing discrete mathematical models and their representations as adjacency matrices.
This suite of tools is built upon several open source projects. See the CPMP-Tools license information.
