Welcome to the Core-Plus Mathematics Site!
The Core-Plus Mathematics
Project (CPMP) has completed a significant revision of its international-like,
four-year high school mathematics program. The research-based curriculum
materials are the product of iterative cycles of design, development,
field-testing, and refinement over more than 20 years with support,
in part, from the National Science Foundation.
See the detailed timeline of the curriculum design, development, and evaluation for more information.
The new Common Core State Standards (CCSS) edition of Core-Plus Mathematics builds
on the strengths of previous editions that were cited as Exemplary by
the U.S. Department of Education Expert Panel on Mathematics and Science
and by the Business-Higher Education Forum as one of 32 education
programs (across all subject areas) that works to ensure college and
