Carnegie Learning® Common Core Math Approved By New Mexico Public Education Department

PITTSBURGH, Feb. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The New Mexico Public Education Department (PED) has approved Carnegie Learning® Common Core Math Programs for implementation in the state through 2018. The approved list of curricula provides an array of core/basal and supplementary instructional materials for purchase by school districts using state education funds with the goal to enhance the delivery of instruction that will support student proficiency in meeting New Mexico state standards.

The Carnegie Learning Middle School Math Series, courses 1-3 for grades 6, 7 and 8, and Algebra I Common Core curricula offer a unique blended solution of textbooks and software that delivers highly personalized instruction to support students of varied skill levels as both a core and a supplemental intervention solution. Instructional materials on the approved list are reviewed and formally adopted by the Public Education Department for purchase by New Mexico school districts using state education funds.

In addition, Carnegie Learning Professional Development Services support Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice by preparing New Mexico teachers for classroom instruction that deepens student content knowledge, promotes problem-solving, and encourages students to reflect on their thinking and consolidate new mathematical ideas.

New Mexico is one of 45 states and the District of Columbia embracing Common Core with the goal to prepare all students for college and careers in the 21 st century. New Mexico's education leadership was actively involved in drafting Common Core alongside the National Governor's Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers. The state was among the first to begin implementing new CCSS-aligned curricula in the 2011-12 school year.

Based on more than 20 years of research and third-party evaluation, Carnegie Learning curricula and professional development support  for teachers are currently adopted in fifteen of 20 curricula adoption states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Kentucky, Mississippi, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah and West Virginia.
