How does a department, school, or district decide on a math program? Before a review process begins, all shareholders should inform the team what they would like to see in a math curriculum and what they expect from the program. CPM recommends the Instructional Materials Evaluation Tool (IMET) for mathematics and the Materials Analysis Tools by NCSM as starting points.
NCSM and NCTM have partnered to create a tool for evaluating curriculum. View the Materials Analysis Tools by NCSM to view a webinar about their Curriculum Materials Analysis Tool, read about the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) Mathematics Curriculum Materials Analysis Project, and to download the tool.
Alignment documents are available upon request at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Lexile® Framework for Reading is a scientific approach to reading and text measurement. For more information and to view CPM’s Lexile scores for our Core Connection books, visit our Lexile text measures page.

This professional learning is designed for teachers as they begin their implementation of CPM. This series contains multiple components and is grounded in multiple active experiences delivered over the first year. This learning experience will encourage teachers to adjust their instructional practices, expand their content knowledge, and challenge their beliefs about teaching and learning. Teachers and leaders will gain first-hand experience with CPM with emphasis on what they will be teaching. Throughout this series educators will experience the mathematics, consider instructional practices, and learn about the classroom environment necessary for a successful implementation of CPM curriculum resources.
Page 2 of the Professional Learning Progression (PDF) describes all of the components of this learning event and the additional support available. Teachers new to a course, but have previously attended Foundations for Implementation, can choose to engage in the course Content Modules in the Professional Learning Portal rather than attending the entire series of learning events again.
