eBooks in Core Connections
CPM’s student-centered, problem-based curriculum can be delivered via an eBook, a living textbook. The eBook is not a static PDF; it has built-in interactive eTools and Desmos calculators at the students’ fingertips. With eWorkspace, students can enter their responses by typing or uploading an image to share their work with their teacher.
The Digital Platform in Inspiring Connections
In this multimodal series, digital and print materials work in tandem to maximize student engagement. The choice of medium for each aspect of a lesson is based on how and where students learn best. Employing digital components, such as pacing, eTools, and eWorkspace, along with print components like the Mathematician’s Notebook, strategically foster student engagement in their mathematical thinking. Both media play a vital role in this process.
Our Professional Learning
CPM’s professional learning is a robust, empowering program that seeks to build the capacity of all teachers to have confidence in the mathematical content, plan lessons purposefully, and assess understanding to give effective feedback to students.
The CPM Professional Learning Portal serves as the access point for our professional learning with a live events schedule and registration page (for both in-person or virtual events), On-Demand Modules, and a dashboard personalized for each teacher with their registered events/modules.
