Our collaborative textbooks will engage your students.
One way to motivate students is to deliver math instruction in a collaborative learning environment. This approach helps students spend more time being active learners during class periods as they interact with their peers to solve problems together. We use real-world situations in our math problems, which helps students to see how math is relevant in their daily lives. And our math problems are designed to emphasize connections between verbal, numeric, graphic and algebraic representations.
Carnegie Learning develops and publishes textbooks to support a collaborative classroom. Our classroom activities address both mathematical content and process standards. Students develop skills to work cooperatively to solve problems. Additionally, they improve their reasoning, sense making and communication skills.
Our consumable textbooks provide an opportunity for extended investigations, analysis and alternate solution paths. Each student is given a text that they can write in whether it is taking notes, highlighting key data in a problem, solving a problem, or writing complete sentences to describe problem solving strategies.
Carnegie Learning publishes student and teacher's textbook sets for the following core math programs:
