McGraw-Hill Education Acquires Publisher of Sketchpad®

McGraw-Hill Education, a division of The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., today announced the acquisition of Key Curriculum, a privately held developer of mathematics learning technology in the K-12 and higher education markets.

The move allows McGraw-Hill Education to integrate its research-based curricula with advanced digital programs and tools, broadening the company’s capability to build interactive, data-focused math programs and expanding its offerings that address the Common Core State Standards.

Sketchpad®, Key Curriculum’s signature product, enables students to learn math in a hands-on manner by allowing them to visualize the abstractions of math. Fathom® aims to deepen students’ data analysis skills and understanding of statistics, and TinkerPlots® helps build students’ understanding of data by transforming data into clear representations.
