Students are organized into study teams and work on problem-based applications, team strategies and real-world applications. Many algebra teachers feel reenergized and are having more fun teaching math with the CPM approach. Algebra classes focus on both basic skills and problem solving strategies that are used to help students relate to and understand the concepts behind the problems. Our students are being taught Algebra in a more rigorous and relevant manner. It's really about discovering the math, rather than being told the math.
