Tomorrow, we have a special holiday themed post for you. If you know what holiday we’re talking about, then you’ll know why we asked a math teacher for ideas on what company to feature. If you have no idea what we’re talking about, then you’ll have to wait until tomorrow to find out. Our math teaching friend made a great recommendation, but we found something that was a slightly better fit. Still, we couldn’t pass this one up, so consider it a hint about what holiday we’ll be celebrating tomorrow. Carnegie Learning develops comprehensive mathematics curricula for middle school and high school students. They were founded by cognitive science researchers from Carnegie Mellon University in conjunction with veteran mathematics teachers.

So, this math teaching friend of ours was raving about Carnegie Learning’s curriculum, and he’s not the only one. The Carnegie Learning approach combines the use of their proprietary software with classroom instruction to improve educational outcomes for students. Basically, Carnegie Learning’s software assesses students and then provides curricula tailored to individual student needs. Not only are teachers shouting their praises of the system, but the Department of Education has recognized Carnegie’s Cognitive Tutor Algebra I program “as one of only two math curricula scientifically proven to have significant, positive effects on student learning.” We’re sure that some of you are really interested in this, and you should certainly go to the Carnegie Learning website to continue your research.

We think that the coolest jobs at Carnegie Learning are probably in curriculum development, but those jobs typically require at least a few years of teaching experience. If that’s what you want to do, you might want to take a look at some entry-level teaching jobs instead, and come back to Carnegie Learning in a few years. If you want a job with Carnegie Learning now, then you should look at their job listings page and look for the Software Engineer – Infrastructure, Software Engineer – User Interface, and Inside Sales Representative positions, which might be a little more entry-level friendly. There’s a lot more research that you can do on this one, so get to work!

Note: On April 25th we revisited entry-level jobs at Carnegie Learning.
