Take the survey for the 17th Annual CMP Users' Conference!

CMP Users' Conference

Powerpoint slides for the opening talk and grade overviews are now available! Visit the Users' Conference page to view them.


We are pleased to announce that CMP 3, which is fully aligned with the CCSS for Mathematics and the Mathematical Practices, is available for implementation. CMP3 offers robust digital support for the program. You can create your own demo account to begin reviewing CMP3 content right now. To create your demo account, go to Once there, scroll down the page, and click on the text bubble that reads, "Explore Teacher Place". Follow the instructions on that page to create your account. Pearson makes all CMP3 content available even in their demo accounts, so you can gain immediate access prior to your print materials arriving.

Book Covers

With funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) in 1991-1996, and in 2000-2006, the Connected Mathematics Project (CMP) developed a complete mathematics curriculum for middle school teachers and students. CMP helps students and teachers develop understanding of important mathematical concepts, skillsprocedures, and ways of thinking and reasoning, in number, geometry, measurement, algebra, probability and statistics. CMP is based on research, and was field-tested in diverse sites across the country with approximately 45,000 students and 390 teachers. Each unit, in both 1991-1996 and 2000-2006 development periods, went through at least 3 cycles of field testing. A growing body of research and evaluation reports (2006 Evaluation Booklet, New Studies, CMP Literature Review 2010) indicates that CMP outperforms non-CMP curricula on tests of problem-solving ability, equals or outperforms non-CMP curricula on skills tests, and promotes long term retention.

Overarching Goal of CMP

All students should be able to reason and communicate proficiently in mathematics. They should have knowledge of and skill in the use of the vocabulary, forms of representation, materials, tools, techniques, and intellectual methods of the discipline of mathematics, including the ability to define and solve problems with reason,insight, inventiveness and proficiency.
