|A Model for Mathematics Education Reform. A four-year, problem based mathematics curriculum for high schools, to meet the needs of both college-bound and non-college-bound students. IMP is designed to replace the four-course sequence typical of most high school mathematics programs with an integrated course. While the traditional Algebra I-Geometry-Algebra II/Trigonometry-Precalculus structure emphasizes rote learning of mathematical skills and concepts, the IMP curriculum is problem-based, consisting of four-to-eight-week units that are each organized around a central problem or theme. Motivated by this central focus, students solve a variety of smaller problems, both routine and non-routine, that develop the underlying skills and concepts needed to solve the central problems in that unit.|
