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
Communication between parents and the teacher is important for student success. If you have not already had an open house or back-to-school night at your school, you might want to contact your student's teacher to open the channels of communication. You can support the teacher and your child by :
- Discussing the importance of mathematics for your child's future.
- Instilling in your child the belief that they can learn mathematics.
- Encouraging your child to study, take notes, and do their homework.
- Encouraging your child to ask questions in class and to communicate with teammates.
