The Core Plus Mathematics Program (CPMP) 3rd edition is the mathematics curriculum used at Brighton High School. Below is a brief description of the curriculum, taken from the CPMP website. For more information, visit the CPMP website at http://www.wmich.edu/cpmp.
With funding from the National Science Foundation, the Core-Plus Mathematics Project (CPMP) has developed, field-tested, and evaluated a second major updating and revision of its curriculum for college-preparatory high school mathematics. Core-Plus Mathematics 3rd edition builds on the strengths of the first and second edition that was cited as Exemplary by the U.S. Department of Education.
Key features of the curriculum materials include:
- integrated development of fundamental concepts and skills in algebra and functions, geometry and trigonometry, statistics and probability, and discrete mathematics.
- student-centered investigations of important mathematics, in the context of realistic problems and applications, leading to a robust understanding of mathematical concepts, principles, and techniques and productive habits of mind.
- impressive new technology tools to enhance learning, teaching, and problem solving across the mathematics curriculum.
