Michigan State University  
A project funded by the NSF to develop a complete mathematics curriculum for the middle grades (68), one rich in connections among the various topic strands of the subject, between mathematics and its applications in other disciplines, between the planned teaching/learning activities and the special aptitudes and interests of middle school students, and between the preparation developed by elementary school mathematics and the goals of secondary school mathematics. Foci include: mathematical content and process goals; instructional themes; algebra in CMP; structure and organization of student materials; problemcentered teaching; structure of teacher materials; the role of technology; project instructional model; grouping students; assessment; and ideas for portfolio assessment. The site includes a list of CMP units, a FAQ, software, teacher enhancement sites, and more.
