In the 2009-10 school year, Pasco School District elementary schools began using Investigations in Number, Data, and Space, 2nd Edition. The program had been piloted in numerous 4th and 5th grade classrooms during 2007-08 and then in all classes at Longfellow and Mark Twain in 2008-09.

"CMP helps students and teachers develop an understanding of important mathematical concepts, skills, procedures, and ways of thinking and reasoning, in number, geometry, measurement, algebra, probability and statistics. CMP is based on research, and was field-tested in diverse sites across the country with approximately 45,000 students and 390 teachers. Each unit, in both 1991-1996 and 2000-2006 development periods, went through at least 3 cycles of field testing. A growing body of research and evaluation reports (2006 Evaluation Booklet, New Studies, CMP Literature Review 2008) indicates that CMP outperforms non-CMP curricula on tests of problem-solving ability, equals or outperforms non-CMP curricula on skills tests, and promotes long term retention." -Michigan State University CMPCongratulations Longfellow Elementary on a successful Family Math Night!
