Whitley County Deploys $95,000 Math Program

##AUTHORSPLIT##<--->

The Whitley County School System in southeast Kentucky is adopting Carnegie Learning's Bridge to Algebra and Geometry programs to help improve math scores and graduation rates for its students. The $95,000 investment in software, textbooks, and professional development services was made with federal Title I funds.

The district's students are already using Carnegie Learning's Algebra I program as part of a nationwide algebra study, conducted by the RAND Corporation and funded by the United States Department of Education, assessing the effectiveness of the program.

Compatible with Mac OS X and Windows, the company's Cognitive Tutor is a research-based multimedia math curriculum that includes a mix of software, textbooks, professional development, and other resources.
