Secondary Curricula

Our updated Geometry curriculum with interactive Proof tools provides deeper, richer content.

Carnegie Learning Geometry

Carnegie Learning Geometry incorporates the van Hiele model of Geometric thought; a theory that describes how students learn geometry. Our curriculum will enable students to develop a deep understanding of Geometry. The course assumes number fluency and basic algebra skills such as equation solving. Carnegie Learning Geometry is aligned to NCTM and Achieve standards. It is designed to be taken after an algebra course and can be implemented with students at a variety of ability and grade levels.

Features of Cognitive Tutor Software

Cognitive Tutor software is designed to complement our textbooks, but can be used as supplemental curricula for interventions, summer school, and other implementation options. Features include:

  • Differentiated instruction: provides instruction that addresses each student's unique needs
  • Mastery learning model and multi-step problems
  • Continuous formative assessment
  • Immediate feedback and positive reinforcement
  • Detailed reports for analyzing student progress
  • Review for practice prior to exams

Recommended for 40% (or two class periods/week) of the total instructional time in a course, the software is most often accessed via a web delivery model using the Carnegie Learning Online website. It can be delivered via a standalone installation, network/LAN, or remote-hosted local client-server model.

Blended Curriculum

Our Geometry content can be delivered in a blended course format, with a combination of collaborative, student-centered textbook lessons and adaptive Cognitive Tutor software lessons. Can be used as core instruction.

Textbooks

Carnegie Learning Geometry content can be delivered via textbooks that support a collaborative classroom. Our classroom activities address both mathematical content and process standards. Students develop skills to work cooperatively to solve problems and improve their reasoning and communication skills.
