CMP Video Receives Facilitators' Choice Award during NSF STEM for All Video Showcase
CMP and Concord Consortium submitted a video to the 2019 National Science Foundation STEM for All Video Showcase. The video shows teachers and students interacting with the CMP collaborative digital platform.
We are honored that the video, Math Understanding in a Digital Collaborative Environment, received a facilitators' Choice Award during the event. Facilitators, representing well-known researchers, practitioners, and policymakers, voted on the showcase videos during the event.
New - Math Fever with a Twist
A new idea for how to creatively adapt the CMP Math Fever game. The teacher picks the categories based on Unit, Grade, or to review a previous grade. The students create 5 questions with answers in each of the categories. The questions and answers need to be written so they fit the game format.
Embed the questions in the game template and play!
Resources for Preparing to Teach CMP
The CMP website contains valuable resources to assist you with your planning and implementation. We organized some of these resources into different categories to help get you started. The resources include:
- Unit Preparation
- Lesson Preparation
- Discourse and Collaboration: Teacher Strategies
- Discourse and Collaboration: Supporting Students
- Student Work and Notebooks
- Using Technology
Student Work Examples
For the past several years, CMP teachers have provided us with student work from various Units and Grades. These examples provide a unique opportunity to stimulate conversations about student understanding of important mathematical ideas that are embedded in the Problem. This may provide you with some new insights into the teaching and learning process.
We are continually adding new student work. If you have some that you would like to share with us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
CMP Discussion Group
