# The Interactive Mathematics Program®(IMP)

Interactive Mathematics Program is an integrated high-school mathematics curriculum designed to challenge students with a four-year sequence of college-preparatory mathematics. The curriculum has demonstrated in schools throughout the country that the successful study of advanced mathematics is an achievable standard for ALL students.

## Curriculum Details

Interactive Mathematics Program® is one of three comprehensive high-school mathematics curricula identified as “Exemplary” by the U.S. Department of Education for providing convincing evidence of its effectiveness in multiple schools with diverse populations.

### Interactive Mathematics Program places a strong emphasis on mathematical reasoning.

In IMP, students rely on mathematical reasoning to solve challenging problems, based on real-world situations as well as meaningful scenarios. With an emphasis on critical thinking, students develop multiple strategies to solve problems.

### Interactive Mathematics Program® is technology-enhanced.

The IMP curriculum incorporates graphing calculators as an integral part of the development of mathematical ideas. The calculators enable students to see mathematics and problem solving in a different way and allow them to focus on ideas.

**THE OVERLAND TRAIL** Students look at mid-19th-century Western migration in terms of the many linear relationships involved.

**THE PIT AND THE PENDULUM** Exploring an excerpt from this Edgar Allan Poe classic, students use data from experiments and statistical ideas, such as standard deviation, to develop a formula for the period of a pendulum.

**SHADOWS** Students use principles about similar triangles and basic trigonometry to develop formulas for finding the length of a shadow.

**COOKIES** In their work to maximize profits for a bakery, students deepen their understanding of the relationship between equations and inequalities and their graphs.

**ALL ABOUT ALICE** The unit starts with a model based on Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, through which students develop the basic principles for working with exponents.
