A textbook alone can't drive transformation. Here's what does.
We are thrilled to be named a highly ranked blended middle school math solution by EdReports. As our Senior Academic Officer Sandy Bartle Finocchi says, "We’re very thoughtful in developing our instructional materials. We spend a lot of time thinking about the mathematics and making sure it’s coherent and connected."
Yet we also know that a textbook alone can't drive transformation. That's why we blend our high quality instructional materials with unparalleled artificial intelligence-powered software (MATHia®), and innovative professional learning support to really make a difference for districts across the country. We call it the Carnegie Learning Way.
There are a lot of math solutions out there, but none that leverages artificial intelligence and decades of cognitive science research to deliver math learning like a human coach would. MATHia continually adjusts to each student, making sophisticated pedagogical decisions and delivering a personalized learning path with ongoing formative assessments. In an independent “Gold Standard” study funded by the U.S. Department of Education and conducted by the RAND Corporation, our blended learning approach nearly doubled growth in performance on standardized tests relative to typical students in the second year of implementation.
Transforming math learning requires more than instructional materials -- it requires a shift in culture, away from a more traditional approach and towards a student-centered environment. If we hope for students to do well in math and develop into life-long learners, we need to create opportunities for them to develop 21st-century skills and become critical thinkers and problem-solvers.
Our Master Math Practitioners deliver practical strategies, first-hand insights, and smart training that helps teachers shift their mindset, deepen content knowledge and create student-centered learning environments where everyone thrives.
We're in this together. If you believe as we do, that students deserve a math education that develops them into creative problem solvers, critical thinkers and life-long learners, and that teachers deserve materials that will support them in bringing that learning to life, then let's work together to make it happen.
