CPM’s 6-12 materials help bridge the gap between the IDEALS of teacher education courses and the REALITIES encountered in classrooms.
The primary goal of CPM’s University Support Program (USP) is to provide future 6-12 mathematics teachers with quality teaching resources as they prepare for and begin their careers. Through the USP, CPM offers complimentary access to teacher editions of CPM curriculum to MTEs and their future mathematics teachers throughout their preparation, including in methods courses, practicum, and student teaching.
The USP also provides complimentary access to mathematics education researchers and their research participants, if applicable.
The USP is not intended to provide materials for mathematics instruction in collegiate or secondary mathematics courses — it is exclusively for courses preparing teachers for mathematics pedagogy and for educational research. If you would like to use CPM materials to teach or tutor a mathematics course, please visit the CPM Shop.

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.
