# Pearson CMP3 Math Program for Grades 6-8

## Inquiry-Based Instruction That Connects Mathematical Ideas

*Connected Mathematics 3,* or *CMP3*, is an inquiry-based mathematics program for Grades 6-8. It helps students actively focus on math problem solving, reasoning and proof, communication, representation, and connections. These math practices require students to look deeper and connect problem solving to practical situations. Funded in part by the National Science Foundation, and developed through Michigan State University, *CMP3* provides a powerful inquiry model for learning mathematics and connects mathematical ideas to students’ everyday world.
