This week is our annual Getting to Know *Connected Mathematics *workshop on the campus of Michigan State University.

I’m meeting a large number of teachers this week and I expect more than a few of them will find their way here.

In that spirit, the following is a CMP teachers’ guide to the past couple of years on this blog.

### Curriculum and standards

Commentary on *one particular* Common Core standard

How does CMP compare to some newer ideas in math education?

### Algebra strand

The world’s most complicated launch (For *Frogs, Fleas and Painted Cubes* Problem 2.1)

### Data strand

A risky context that we rejected (but interesting nonetheless)

### Geometry and measurement strand

Cubeyness (or Overthinking *Filling and Wrapping*)

Wump hats I (*Stretching and Shrinking)*

Wump hats II (*Stretching and Shrinking)*

How many degrees in a polygon? (*Shapes and Designs*)

### Number strand

Division of fractions (*Bits and Pieces II*)

### Questions from middle schoolers

This has been an ongoing series of questions and answers from a CMP class in Alaska. This link takes you to the full collection.

### Juvenile middle school humor

Come on. You know you couldn’t last a year in middle school if you didn’t find this stuff funny yourself.

### postscript

CMP teachers…Got anything else you want addressed here? Let me know in the comments or by email; I’ll be glad to get to it.
