|A project funded by the NSF to develop a complete mathematics curriculum for the middle grades (6-8), 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; problem-centered 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.|
