"Working with CBMP
is true empowerment!
I feel like a professional because I’m looking at the assessment anchors, I’m helping to adapt the curriculum, I’m drawing on my experience, I’m drawing on my education, and coming together to talk with other professionals. The process really forced me, as the teacher, to look at the concepts and how I could get those concepts through."

Who We Are
We are a group of Philadelphia teachers and University of Pennsylvania faculty and students engaged in developing locally relevant and social justice oriented math curriculum with and for Philadelphia middle school math teachers. We are excited to share our work and invite you to join our professional learning community. We hope to be a resource for teachers currently using any math curriculum in Philadelphia.
