PITTSBURGH--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Carnegie Learning, Inc., a leading provider of innovative research-proven math products and services, is taking its movement to transform math learning to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Annual Meeting and Exposition in San Antonio, Texas this week.
Key highlights include:
New Product Launches
- MATHia® for High School – The adaptive software formerly known as Cognitive Tutor, which required Java, is now MATHia for High School, a rich HTML5 web app with no plugin requirements. MATHia coaches and adapts, combining a sophisticated model of math skills and collecting literally thousands of data points as students work through multipart problems. MATHia doesn’t just tell students what they got wrong – it tells them why they got it wrong, for more targeted, empowering math learning.
- Brand New Middle School Textbook – The new Carnegie Learning consumable textbook supports students in a collaborative classroom, where they are encouraged to think critically, reason mathematically, and learn from each other. It includes pacing recommendations, planning materials and parent resources, all carefully crafted by a team of expert master practitioners with decades of real classroom experience.
Professional Learning Opportunities
Combining conference program sessions with in-booth sessions, Carnegie Learning expert math practitioners, known as 'Transformers,' will be sharing their mathematical knowledge and passion with all attendees. From 'The Truth About Mathematical Modeling' to 'Who’s Correct? Celebrating and Learning From Mistakes,' sessions will cover a range of mathematical topics and offer engaging strategies teachers can use to make math come alive for their students.
Book Club Meetup Featuring Tracy Zager
Carnegie Learning recently launched the Me2 Math Book Club (#Me2MathClub), which brings together more than 150 math teachers from the U.S. and abroad to learn from each other and further develop their practice. The first book featured in the Me2 Math Book Club is Becoming the Math Teacher You Wish You’d Had by Tracy Zager. On Friday, April 7, at 4:00 p.m., teachers are invited to a live book club meetup at Booth #743 with a guest appearance by the author.
Exciting Previews and Giveaways at Booth 743
Attendees can sign up for a free LONG + LIVE + MATH T-shirt at www.carnegielearning.com/nctm17. Prizes will be given to teachers who wear the LONG + LIVE + MATH T-shirts at the show on Friday. Attendees can also follow updates and share photos on Twitter using the hashtag #longlivemath.
Carnegie Learning will also be launching its new email newsletter, LONG + LIVE + MATH: Your Monthly Connection. The newsletter offers an opportunity to connect with a community of like-minded teachers who believe that better math learning is possible. Each month, issues will include exciting new resources to support teachers in this work, including classroom facilitation tips, 'Teacher Talk,' where peers share questions and strategies, and 'Transformation Station,' showcasing innovations in other districts around the country.
“The new Carnegie Learning is here, and we're committed to helping teachers transform math learning in their classrooms,” says Barry Malkin, CEO. “We look forward to the gathering of the best math minds at NCTM and the opportunity to continue the conversation about how to do better for our students.”
