For immediate release: CPM Educational Program’s Calculus, reviewed by Learning List, is included on the College Board’s Advanced Placement (AP) Example Textbooks List for Calculus AB and BC courses.

Learning List, the industry leading instructional materials review service for schools and districts, recently reviewed CPM’s Calculus and College Board used those reviews in determining that this material met the criteria for inclusion on the Example Textbooks list for the course. 

The product, available in print and eBook formats, is a comprehensive resource that supports instruction in Advanced Placement (AP) Calculus AB and BC courses. Learning List highlighted the integration of Practices throughout the content, emphasis on collaborative learning, and extensive teacher resources as strengths of this material.

“Our subscribing districts across the country asked us for help in determining which materials to purchase for Advanced Placement materials.” said Learning List president, Jackie Lain. “We worked with College Board to develop a methodology for reviewing AP materials for alignment to the revised course frameworks and hired as our reviewers many of the AP teachers who helped College Board develop the frameworks.”

Learning features three research-based reviews of CPM’s Calculus including:

1.     An overview of the material’s key academic attributes and technology requirements;

2.     A detailed verification of the material’s alignment to each of the Learning Objectives andMathematical Practices contained in the course framework; and,

3.     An in-depth review of the instructional content and design of the material to help teachers determine whether Calculus will meet their students’ needs.

"We applaud CPM Educational Program for being among the first to submit their AP material for an independent review,” said Lain. “Being a leader is not easy but it certainly paid off with CPM Calculus’ inclusion on the Example Textbooks list.  We hope our that AP teachers will find our reviews helpful both in choosing the resource(s) that will best meet their students’ needs and then using those materials most effectively to fuel their students’ success in the course.”
