The Connected Math Program is a problem-centered curriculum promoting an inquiry-based teaching-learning classroom environment. Mathematical ideas are identified and embedded in a sequenced set of tasks and explored in depth to allow students to develop rich mathematical understandings and meaningful skills.  The Common Core State Standards for Mathematics and the Standard for Mathematical Practice are embedded within each lesson.


The overarching goal of The Connected Math Program is to help students and teachers develop mathematical knowledge, understanding and skill along with an awareness of and appreciation for the rich connections among mathematical strands and between mathematics and other disciplines.
