To support instructors in the transition to the Common Core, Carnegie Learning Professional Development services prepare 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.

Utah is one of 45 states and the District of Columbia embracing Common Core State Standards with the goal to prepare all students for college and careers in the 21 st century.
