If you can't do the math, Carnegie Learning
will show you how.
A leading publisher of research-based math solutions for middle school on up, Carnegie Learning is on track for a fifth consecutive year of growth, providing differentiated instruction to 500,000 students in nearly 2,600 schools across the country.
Most recently the company hit $1 million in sales in the Commonwealth of Kentucky and has signed deals with public school districts in Atlanta, Georgia, and the Recovery School District in New Orleans, LA. Our plan is to continue growth at a steady rate, about 20 to 30 percent year over year, and to continually improve our products working with the Pittsburgh Science of Learning Center at Carnegie Mellon, says Mary Murrin of Carnegie Learning.
"Our ability to be flexible, change things up and turn things around quickly in print is attractive to districts," says Murrin, referring to the soft text manuals that allow schools to customize their approach to teaching. "The nature of our materials, software and consumable text allows us to deliver a high level of customization to districts and states."
Founded by cognitive science researchers and computer scientists from Carnegie Mellon, as well as veteran math teachers, and based on more than 10 years of research, Carnegie Learning employs 93 nationwide, which includes a remote sales team. Sixty-two work in the company headquarters in the Frick Building downtown.
Carnegie Learning's curricula--Bridge to Algebra, Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II and Integrated Math--are based on 20 years of research into how students think, learn and apply new knowledge in mathematics. The idea is to use students' own intuitive problem solving abilities to achieve a more sophisticated understanding of concepts.
