The Texas Math Solution is a fully customized, TEKS-aligned secondary mathematics curriculum. Our adaptive math learning software, MATHia®, closely replicates the STAAR test and provides students with access to high-quality instructional mathematics materials.
Meet the Texas Math Solution
The most flexible path to research-proven math results.
All students deserve to learn with high-quality materials. Our textbook, digital interactive instructional materials, and MATHia work in parallel to engage middle school and high school mathematics students with various learning experiences they need to truly understand mathematics, while delivering powerful, real-time insights for teachers and administrators to ensure students are mastering the content.
High-Quality Content Aligned to Texas Standards
Teachers get digital access to clearly articulated, coherent TEKS-aligned units with daily lesson plans that they can use wherever learning happens. Each lesson includes a "Talk the Talk" exit ticket for formative assessment as well as summative assessments.
MATHia's Intelligent Learning Engine
Our adaptive, one-on-one tutoring software extends the teacher's reach by personalizing the learning and keeping students engaged with just-in-time feedback and contextual hints.
Real-Time Data and Actionable Insights
MATHia assesses students as they learn, so teachers get real-time data and actionable insights on what to do next, even when students are learning remotely. At a glance, teachers can see students' activity and productivity levels, as well as what skills they've mastered or are struggling with. This insight helps teachers focus on who needs help the most, right in the moment.
Robust, Ongoing Support for Teachers, Students, and Families
Teachers are provided onboarding and training through on-demand and live online workshops as well as access to a robust library of instructional strategy and implementation videos. Students and families get real-time homework help through the LiveHint app and instructional videos for every lesson.
In an independent "gold standard" study funded by the U.S. Department of Education and conducted by the RAND Corporation that included a Texas school district, the Carnegie Learning blended approach nearly doubled growth in performance on standardized tests relative to typical students in the second year of implementation. This study is more comprehensive and rigorous than any other research study on a middle school or high school mathematics program.
MATHia is the only program that provides clear, deep insight into where students are going, not just where they currently are. The Adaptive Personalized Learning Score (APLSE) Report leverages predictive analytics to give educators a clear projection of where students will be, well in advance of summative assessment results and before it’s too late to intervene with the help they need.
Assessment-Quality Data With MATHia Reports
Additional MATHia reports, including Skills Reports, Session Reports, and Standards Reports, show how students are mastering TEKS standards and highlight their progress in the software by tracking things like rate of module completion, time spent, average errors per problem, and more.
Real-Time Insights With LiveLab
LiveLab is the perfect tool for knowing exactly what your students are working on in real-time so you can guide them and intervene accordingly. Dynamic indicators show which students are working or idle at all times, while alerts let you know which students may need additional support. You can also get live notifications to assist students who are having trouble mastering specific skills, completing certain activities, or to recognize students for hitting content progression milestones.
“The kids have a lot more stamina and are willing to stick with something a bit longer. They're not so reliant on the teacher, but look to each other for information. They not only have the mathematical skills, but problem-solving skills too.” Chantelle Elliott, Math Coordinator
Frisco Independent School District, TX
"I am so impressed with Carnegie Learning's curriculum and support. My students [...] are loving the explorative learning, activities and time to collaborate with their peers. This is our first year to pilot the program and already I can see a difference in the depth of understanding students have as to how and why the math works. It's so great to see students who may not have cared for math before, suddenly 'getting' it and enjoying their learning." Michelle Reynolds, 7th PreAP Math Teacher
Dickinson Independent School District, TX
“Before Carnegie Learning, we had struggles. This program has really helped us—we’ve seen a turnaround in our students, and we’ve seen a turnaround in our scores.” Steven M. Solis, Associate Director
