Southern Columbia Area School District
Grade 6 & 7  MATH

The CMP curriculum development has been guided by a single mathematical standard:

All students should be able to reason and communicate proficiently in mathematics. They should have knowledge of and skill in the use of the vocabulary, forms of representation, materials, tools, techniques, and intellectual methods of the discipline of mathematics, including the ability to define and solve problems with reason, insight, inventiveness, and technical proficiency.

CMP3 is a problem-centered math curriculum. This means that mathematical concepts are embedded in interesting problems. As students explore a series of connected problems, they develop understanding of the embedded ideas!

SCA Middle School Parents, (Grades 6th & 7th)
We recognize that Connected Math (CMP3) is NEW to many of you! The program may be very different from previous math you’ve learned, or extra challenging if you are not familiar with the program or the more rigorous PA Core Standards. Our goal is to provide you with some resources to help you guide your student to CMP3 success this school year. The links on the left should provide you with some resources to learn about the program, and how you can help guide your student through the learning and practice of new concepts this school year.


CMP3 - Homework Support  for Families!  
This site provides insight to how families can learn together!  How do you get started on solving a problem?  How do you work through a problem and organize the information? See sample questions that can help your child reflect on the solution, and how to extend the learning to a deeper understanding by explaining it in a different way... and so much more!
If you have further need for resources or recommendations on how you can support your CMP3 student, please contact your child’s math teacher!
