Some students need additional help to succeed in math.
We offer the instruction they need.
Our Cognitive Tutor software has a unique method for differentiating instruction by assessing multiple skills at once, constantly monitoring each student and providing them with the right instruction at the right time. Students move at their own pace, and are provided with helpful interactive examples and positive feedback on their way to mastery of key mathematics skills. And, our software supports data-driven decision making due to the formative assessments woven throughout the curricula. All of these features make the Cognitive Tutor the perfect choice for mathematics Response to Intervention (RTI) programs.
We also offer the Carnegie Learning 24/7 Math Help service, which provides one-on-one online tutoring for at-risk students. Certified tutors use chat windows and online white boards to communicate with your students, offering help and pointing them in the right direction. Students lead the discussions, and can ask as many questions as they need to achieve understanding.
Carnegie Learning offers math curricula and services that can be applied to tiered interventions. Several implementation options are available to meet the needs of your students; use the tabs below for more information, or contact a Carnegie Learning sales representative.
RTI Tier 1: Universal
You can implement Carnegie Learning Curricula as your universal curriculum for all students. Our core curriculum model helps students obtain a deep conceptual understanding of the math. Students spend more time learning while working on engaging math programs in groups and independently.
A daily instruction model where students spend more time being active learners during class periods as they work in small groups or independently to solve engaging math problems. Each student is given a Carnegie Learning consumable textbook that they can write in, take notes in, highlight key data in a problem, and show their work to solve a problem. Teachers encourage and facilitate classroom discourse about mathematics. Students are expected to regularly prepare, present, and discuss solutions to math problems.
RTI Tier 2: Strategic
We can target students' skill deficits in our Cognitive Tutor software. It is the most powerful mathematics software for differentiating instruction. Each student receives a truly individualized learning experience because the software adapts to their learning needs. Students are also provided support while they learn in the forms of just-in-time feedback and hints. They're designed to be very specific to help a student persist to solve the math problems.
You can provide supplemental instruction via Cognitive Tutor software. Simply assign the curriculum to students and based upon their knowledge and performance the software will present problems to address student weaknesses. Alternatively, teachers can selectively assign units as needed for practice, reteaching or reinforcement as needed in addition to instruction received from the core curriculum.
RTI Tier 3: Intensive
At-risk students need more time and practice to master math skills. We provide teachers with the ability to create a custom curriculum sequence to target students' weakest skills. We also offer interactive review sessions for students who need to refresh their understanding of material they've studied previously. We have additional print materials, like a Homework Helper to extend instructional time into the home. Each Homework Helper volume contains instructions so parents can assist their child if needed.
Example: Students needing an intensive intervention are enrolled in a math support class and Algebra I class concurrently. The Math Support class can address math fundamentals and deepen math understanding required to progress in Algebra I.
