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 almost 30 years with support,
in part, from the National Science Foundation.
See the detailed timeline of the curriculum design, development, and evaluation for more information.
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
