CME Project is a four-year, NSF-funded, comprehensive high school mathematics program that is problem-based, student-centered, and organized around the familiar themes of Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, and Precalculus.
The series was developed by the Center for Mathematics Education at Education Development Center, Inc. (EDC) in Waltham, Massachusetts, and is published by Pearson Education, Inc.
Organizing Principle of CME Project
The widespread utility and effectiveness of mathematics come not just from mastering specific skills, topics, and techniques, but more importantly, from developing the ways of thinking —the habits of mind—used to create the results.
- sets as its goal robust mathematical proficiency for all students by emphasizing the interplay between mathematical thinking and essential technical skills;
- provides a coherent curriculum with mathematical ideas, skills, and themes introduced early and deepened throughout the program.
CME Project standards-based mathematics curriculum and CME Project content-based professional development provided by EDC address the goals of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009.
- EDC offers intensive, capacity-building training to ensure teachers have the knowledge and tools to develop students’ mathematical thinking and effectively implement CME Project in the classroom.
