Hamilton County Expands Carnegie Learning Math Curriculum


Hamilton County Schools in Tennessee has recently expanded its implementation of Carnegie Learning's math curriculum, which had originally been piloted in three schools back in 2001 until it grew to district-wide adoption by 2005. All eighth- and ninth-grade Algebra I classes in the district are currently using Carnegie's Cognitive Tutor Algebra I.

The latest expansion of the Carnegie curriculum totaled $400,000 in licenses.

"Hamilton County Schools continues to see improvements in our math scores and students' enthusiasm levels with Carnegie Learning," said Christy Evans, director of secondary math and science for the district. "We are very pleased to be expanding the curricula to additional students as we strive to improve graduation rates in the district."

For the last two years, the district has also added Cognitive Tutor Bridge to Algebra curriculum in some schools and Geometry and Algebra II curricula in all schools.
