Carnegie Learning math curriculum products
Carnegie Learning's curriculum products are based on using both a textbook, and Cognitive Tutor math software. The learner spends 40% of his time using the software, and 60% with textbook activities.
This creates a unique, self-paced platform for algebra readiness, Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II and Integrated Math programs.
The software allows students to work at their own pace, identifies student's weaknesses, and customizes instruction to focus on areas where the student is struggling. The system is built on cognitive models, which represent the knowledge a student might possess about a given subject. The software assesses the prior mathematical knowledge of students on a step-by-step basis and presents curricula tailored to their individual skill levels.
The textbook activities parallel and extend the development of concepts in the software, emphasizing written analyses and classroom presentations. Real-world situations are used in problems designed to emphasize connections between verbal, numeric, graphic and algebraic representations.
