CME Project Linear Algebra and Geometry is an NSF-funded curriculum for linear algebra geared for high school audiences. It is designed for schools that want to offer an elective to students who have finished the traditional high school program or who want an alternative to the first or second course in calculus. While demanding, the only prerequisite is the equivalent of Algebra 2 (including elementary trigonometry).
The series was developed within the Learning and Teaching Division at Education Development Center, Inc. (EDC) in Waltham, Massachusetts.
Organizing Principle of CME Project
The widespread utility and effectiveness of mathematics come not just from mastering specific skills, topics, and techniques, but more importantly, from developing the ways of thinking—the habits of mind—used to create the results.
