## CPM (College Preparatory Mathematics)

CPM is a non‐profit corporation with over 25 years’ experience dedicated to teaching more students more mathematics by providing improved middle school and high school curricula. The classes are structured to actively involve every student in the process of learning mathematics. The problem-based lessons provide a balance of basic skills, conceptual understanding, and problem solving strategies. Each lesson has a mathematical objective and focuses on one or more of the mathematical practices. Homework (the “Review and Preview” sections) practice ideas from the current chapter and previous topics, but spread the practice over several days and weeks so that students have time to become proficient with ideas and skills. The course contains all of the content and practice standards that new California Standards require, which in turn will be reflected in the new Common Core Assessments.
