Higher Education Implementation Options
Community colleges must adapt to the needs of their students, from working adults to young undergrads, who may be arriving on campus anxious to move ahead but not yet ready for college math.
Carnegie Learning Developmental Math Software Solution provides interactive instruction that can be incorporated in Beginning Algebra, Elementary Algebra, and/or Intermediate Algebra courses. Our curricula can be used as primary course materials, or supplemental materials.
Primary Course Materials
The Cognitive Tutor software contains content ranging from working with whole numbers to trigonometry. It can be combined with select Carnegie Learning print materials as a full course delivery option and implemented in a math lab style classroom. In this scenario, the instructor moderates the lab and is available for questioning and individualized help as students work on the software at their own pace. The Cognitive Tutor web based delivery also facilitates distance learning and remote course management.
To see the full content scope & sequence, please see the Brochures tab at the left.
Supplementary Course Materials
Carnegie Learning Developmental Math Software is aligned with, and can be used as a software supplement to many textbooks. In this type of implementation, students spend a portion of their course time in a traditional lecture scenario with the textbook, and the remaining time in an instructor moderated learning lab with the Cognitive Tutor software. In a learning support scenario, Carnegie Learning software materials supplement existing course resources and syllabi with a flexible modular design.
Our Developmental Math Curricula can supplement your developmental math textbooks. Click on the following links for some examples:
- Introductory Algebra by Marvin L. Bittinger (Pearson, Addison Wesley)
- Martin-Gay Beginning Algebra (Pearson, Prentice Hall)
- Prealgebra by Charles P. McKeague (Thomson, Brooks/Cole)
