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 problembased program. Designed for all grade levels, IMP stresses interconnections among various mathematics branches, embedding math into meaningful problemsolving contexts. (ERIC)
