PITTSBURGH--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Carnegie Learning, Inc., a leading provider of innovative research-proven math products and services, is on a mission to transform math learning.
“You really get the sense that you’re with a family of teachers who understand your struggles, but are also motivated to find the solutions to those struggles”
In 2015, the United States ranked 40th in math on the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) exam.1 Its rankings fell below average when compared with scores from 72 countries worldwide.
Carnegie Learning aims to reverse this trend by partnering with educators to transform their classrooms and develop 21st century skills for every student. The company recently launched a new movement and Long + Live + Math™ rallying cry, which includes a new brand identity, top talent, state-of-the-art headquarters and product enhancements.2
The movement now continues with expanded Transformer Services:
Today’s schools are flooded with data, but data is only valuable if it translates into action. Carnegie Learning has a team of cognitive scientists and learning experts to help educators organize and decipher data so they can effectively guide, measure and adjust instruction. This includes studying technology usage patterns, sub-population reporting, results, and other custom data sets, to provide schools and districts with a smarter way forward. Custom offerings are now available to all Carnegie Learning customers and non-customers, from initial audits to comprehensive data-driven action planning.
Carnegie Learning Transformers have decades of in-classroom experience and deliver practical strategies, firsthand insights, and smart training that help teachers shift their mindset, deepen content knowledge, and create student-centered learning environments where everyone thrives. “You really get the sense that you’re with a family of teachers who understand your struggles, but are also motivated to find the solutions to those struggles,” says Jenae Beauchamp, Math Teacher at East Hartford High School in Connecticut.

“Other providers are content with selling their products, training teachers quickly on those products, and then moving on,” says Barry Malkin, CEO of Carnegie Learning. “We’re focused on transformation, which requires ongoing collaboration, coaching, and not being afraid to question assumptions along the way. That’s how real growth happens, and that’s why our company exists.”
