Connected Mathematics 3, or CMP3, is an inquiry-based mathematics program for Grades 6-8. It helps students actively focus on math problem solving, reasoning and proof, communication, representation, and connections. These math practices require students to look deeper and connect problem solving to practical situations. Funded in part by the National Science Foundation, and developed through Michigan State University, CMP3 provides a powerful inquiry model for learning mathematics. Connect mathematical ideas to students’ everyday world.

Our Algebra I course builds upon topics studied in the Connected Math Program, and enables students to assemble the skills necessary for Geometry and Algebra II. Students will study three major types of functions: linear, exponential, and quadratic. Instruction will be made relevant and authentic through connections to the student’s life outside of the classroom and to other disciplines.
