If we want different results, we need to start thinking differently.

Our People
are Different

We are the only company that brings together researchers, cognitive scientists, master practitioners, and Transformers to develop solutions that are proven to work for students.


"We take the research very seriously, so we understand what’s been proven to work and balance that with a healthy respect for the difficulty in translating laboratory research into practical and effective classroom practices. We're also unique in that we don’t just read about learning science—we’re active collaborators with some of the world’s leading learning scientists."

"Our approach is different because it is inspired by empirical data. We are helping to transform the classroom by applying cognitive science to our products and services. My job is to set students up for success by providing them with the best math education on the planet."

"Mathematics is so much more than rules and algorithms. It is learning to reason, make connections, and make sense of the world. Everyone that works for Carnegie Learning has a passion to help students gain the types of mathematical insights and reasoning that we know are so valuable later in life. When I think about the impact we can have on kids' lives, it is an unparalleled opportunity."

"Our company philosophy is all about 'Learning by Doing.' We believe that students should be active learners, providing and communicating their own ideas, arguments and reasoning while problem solving in mathematics. I witnessed first-hand the success my students had with the Carnegie Learning resources. My students didn't always come to me with the best foundation or motivation to learn math, but something in them changed after utilizing these resources. I knew I had to be a part of this movement."

Our Blended Learning Is Different

Everything you need to transform how your students learn math.

Students Learning Together
Learning Together

Students learn together in a collaborative classroom, both whole group and small group, with consumable textbooks that help them think critically, reason mathematically, and learn from each other.

Students Learning Individually

A gold-standard Department of Education-funded randomized trial of more than 18,000 students at 147 middle and high schools in 7 states proved that the Carnegie Learning blended approach, in the second year of implementation, nearly doubled growth in performance on standardized tests relative to typical students. Studies at this scale are exceedingly rare, and this study is among the largest rigorous trials ever done on a mathematics curriculum. A subsequent study found that student gains were even larger for students who completed more curriculum in the Carnegie Learning Software.

There is a better way.

If you want your students to experience deeper math learning, you have to think differently.
