Common Core State Standards Math Transition Plan Announced

Carnegie Learning has unveiled a Common Core State Standards (CCSS) math transition plan, featuring new core and intervention curricula written for alignment to the more rigorous academic requirements now adopted by 45 states and the District of Columbia. These curricula meet the Standards for Mathematical Content, the Standards for Mathematical Practice, and 100% of the established CCSS defining what students should know and be able to do at each grade level.

The new Carnegie Learning® Math Series: Courses 1-3 is a middle school program developed as a new product aligned to the CCSS for Mathematics. Like Carnegie Learning’s high school math courses, the new middle school Math Series is a blended program integrating textbooks, adaptive software and collaborative instruction. Carnegie Learning® Math Series: Courses 1-3 are available for implementation this fall.

Carnegie Learning’s CCSS-aligned Algebra I is also revised to meet the new CCSS requirements and is available for immediate implementation. Also this year, Carnegie Learning offers a newly aligned Integrated Math I course weaving together numeric, algebraic, geometric, and statistical curricula for students in states committed to an integrated approach to math.

Currently, 146 school districts in 34 states are set to implement the CCSS-aligned Carnegie Learning middle school Math Series, Algebra I, and Integrated Math I programs this coming 2012-2013 academic year.

Geometry, Algebra II, and Integrated Math II and III courses aligned to the Common Core State Standards are in development for release in Spring 2013 and 2014. Carnegie Learning will continue to revise and redefine all curricula each year as districts learn more about the standards and best practices, and as new assessment plans from the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) and the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium are released in 2014-2015.
