Notable Sites

This is a small collection of sites that I think are particularly worthwhile. You can link to them directly from the sidebar on the home page, but this page gives a brief description of each site, in addition to providing the URLs and links.

**Core Plus Mathematics Project (CPMP)**

http://www.wmich.edu/cpmp

CPMP is an NSF-funded project to develop a complete three-year high school mathematics
course for **all** students, plus a fourth-year course continuing the preparation
of students for college mathematics. The curriculum builds on the theme of mathematics
as sense-making and includes the following major features: multiple connected strands,
mathematical modeling, accessibility to all, use of graphing calculators, active
learning, and multi-dimensional assessment.

**PBS MATHLINE**

http://www.pbs.org/teachersource/math/

This project consists of three series of year-long professional development programs for teachers of elementary, middle school, and high school mathematics. The programs are based on videotapes and use online learning communities for teachers to share ideas.

**MATHEMATICAL DIGEST**

http://www.ams.org/new-in-math/mathdigest

This site contains brief summaries of, and full reference information for, recent
articles about mathematics that have been published in such periodicals as *Discover*,
*Nature*, *New Scientist*, *Science*, and *Scientific American.*
