About CoreMatters:

Our goal is to provide all the necessary materials for Common Core Instruction in one place.

Core Matters was founded by Carmel Draper, a lifelong educator who has been involved with the CPM Educational Program for over 20 years. This experience and his characteristic enthusiasm for helping teachers allows him to provide excellent materials in a convenient manner at a reasonable cost.



CPM Educational Program

The CPM Educational Program is one of the leaders in common core math education, and CoreMatters is the official vendor for consumables and equipment used with CPM curricula.

Decades of Experience

Carmel Draper has spent several decades in the very classrooms CoreMatters supplies: first as a teacher, then as an award-winning administrator, and most recently as a teaching coach and consultant.
