Carnegie Expands Math Program to Higher Ed

Carnegie Learning is branching out into higher education with the release of algebra and pre-algebra software solutions targeted at college freshmen and sophomores. The online system, developed out of Carnegie Mellon University, is designed to assess individual students' abilities and provide differentiated instruction solutions to focus on their deficiencies.

The new solutions are built on Carnegie's Cognitive Tutor, which has been used extensively in K-12 math education and in adult education programs. It uses so-called "artificial intelligence" to develop individualized learning programs for individual students.

The new lineup for higher education includes Pre Algebra & Algebra I, MathPrep, and Geometry. These include diagnostic tools, formative and summative assessments, intervention software, resources for teachers (including a professional development plan), and reporting and tracking tools, among other features.

The new software is available for use in January 2008. Carnegie will demonstrate the new software at the American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges conference in Minneapolis, MN Nov. 1 to 4.
