Core Plus

An investment strategy in portfolios and mutual funds in which the majority (sometimes up to 75%) of the portfolio consists of low-risk and risk-free securities, such as Treasury and investment-grade bonds, that are held for the long-term, while the remainder consists of securities carrying higher risk. One adopts a core plus strategy in order to attempt to capitalize on certain securities while also limiting risk. It is one of the more common investment strategies.

The Core-Plus Mathematics Project is one of four projects awarded five-year grants in 1992 by the National Science Foundation to design, evaluate, and disseminate innovative high school curriculums based on the recommendations of the National Council of Teacher of Mathematics (NCTM 1989, 1991).
The Core-Plus Mathematics Project curriculum keeps options open for all students and gives them the opportunity to engage in appropriate mathematics-related work during their senior year.
The CPMP evaluation results show that students experiencing the Core-Plus Mathematics Project's interpretation of a curriculum and pedagogy based on the NCTM Standards were, on average, more positively disposed toward mathematics and understood and were able to apply many important mathematical ideas significantly better than the traditional students to whom they were compared.
