For Information on Connected Math,
Click here :http://www.mth.msu.edu/cmp/ This site provides a wealth of information on all the books used in the 6th8th grades. Parents, please take some time to find out what it's all about. This is a very different model from the math most of us did when we were in school. What is CMP? The Connected Mathematics Project (CMP) was funded by the National Science Foundation between 1991 and 1997 to develop a mathematics curriculum for grades 6, 7, and 8. The result was Connected Mathematics, a complete mathematics curriculum that helps students develop understanding of important concepts, skills, procedures, and ways of thinking and reasoning in number, geometry, measurement, algebra, probability, and statistics.
