CPM is a non-profit educational corporation managed and staffed by middle school and high school teachers. Teachers work collaboratively with university professors to produce classroom materials and support teachers who use them with professional development. Use the links at left to access resources to help your student with her/his course. There is also considerable information about the research base of CPM courses and the approach to learning they employ.
Parent Tips of the Week
CPM offers resources for parents and students at its website www.cpm.org. You might find it useful to take a look at the following sections:
In the Student Support section, you will find help with homework, resource pages that connect to the lessons, links to technology, and extra practice problems.
In the Parent Support section, there are suggestions of ways to help your student, parent guides to lessons, and tips for learning. There are also videos of students in the classroom that will give you an idea of what your child's math class might look like. If you have questions about CPM, an excellent resource is at http://www.cpm.org/support.
