ab: As times change, so has the role of algebra in the educational program. The
Interactive Mathematics Program (IMP) offers secondary students an
opportunity to learn algebra in a college preparatory sequence that
combines basic skills, problem solving, and conceptual understanding
while integrating algebra into a problem-based program. Designed for
all grade levels, IMP stresses interconnections among various
mathematics branches, embedding math into meaningful problem-solving
contexts. (ERIC)
