PITTSBURGH, Oct. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Carnegie Learning Inc., publisher of
K-12 mathematics curricula and professional development services, announced
today that the Georgia State Board of Education has reviewed and recommended
two newly developed high school programs aligned to the Common Core Georgia
Performance Standards (CCGPS): Carnegie Learning CCGPS Analytic Geometry and
CCGPS Advanced Algebra.

( Logo:

The Georgia State Board of Education approved these curricula in a review
intended to address the need for instructional materials to support new more
rigorous expectations for student performance and provide educators with a
clear, focused set of expectations for assessing student progress. Curricula
approved by the Georgia Department of Education in this adoption cycle may be
purchased with state education funds through June 30, 2019.

Carnegie Learning CCGPS Analytic Geometry and CCGPS Advanced Algebra offer a
unique blend of textbook and Cognitive Tutor^® software instruction to deliver
highly personalized mathematics learning for students of varying skill levels.
The curricula are written specifically to meet the requirements of the CCGPS
and to support mathematics instructors in the transition to the new common
core standards.

Carnegie Learning Professional Development servces workshops will support
implementation of these programs and prepare Georgia teachers for classroom
instruction to deepen student content knowledge, promote problem-solving, and
encourage students to reflect on their thinking and consolidate new
mathematical ideas.

In the previous 2012 curriculum and instruction review process, the Georgia
Department of Education recommended Carnegie Learning Math Series textbooks
and MATHia^® software for grades 6-8, and Coordinate Algebra textbooks and
software for adoption through 2019. Carnegie Learning adopted curricula are
currently used in over 40 Georgia districts. 

Carnegie Learning math programs are based on more than 20 years of research
and third-party evaluations. Recently completed research funded by the U.S.
Department of Education and independently conducted by the RAND Corporation
revealed a statistically significant impact of eight percentile points for
students who used Carnegie Learning's Cognitive Tutor® Algebra I. The results
are significant because of a combination of both the size of the research and
the substantial change in student outcomes. Over 17,000 students participated
in 147 schools across seven states for two years.

Carnegie Learning curricula are currently adopted in fifteen of twenty
curricula adoption states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho,
Kentucky, Mississippi, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, South
Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, and West Virginia.
