Santa Fe, NM and Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) November 20, 2005
Get Ahead Learning, based in Pasadena, California, recently granted Carson-Dellosa School Division (http://www.CarsonDellosaSchoolDivision.com) exclusive distribution rights for Get Ahead Math™ (http://www.getaheadmath.com), a powerful computer-based math intervention and enrichment product. This new partnership combines the instructional technology expertise of Get Ahead Learning with the sales channels and brand strength of Carson-Dellosa. Get Ahead Math was developed in association with Dr. John Watson. The foundation of the program is based on Dr. Watson’s doctoral thesis completed at the school of Education at Claremont Graduate University.
The math intervention program is now a cornerstone product for Carson-Dellosa Publishing’s emerging School Division. According to School Division President, Baxter Brings, “This is a great partnership. Carson-Dellosa School Division is dedicated to products that will truly make a difference in the lives of teachers and students. Get Ahead Math is such a product. We are excited to bring it to market quickly so that schools can begin to realize immediate math improvement.”
Get Ahead Math is a PC-based supplemental software program that provides one-on-one instruction, guided practice, and assessment for standards-based concepts found in grades 3-8 including Algebra I. Students become independent problem solvers as they set their own learning pace with The Get Ahead 4-Step Learning Method™, enabling them to fill in skill gaps. The Get Ahead 4-Step Learning Method consists of high-quality video tutorials by award winning teachers, step-by-step examples, on-screen and paper practice worksheets, and assessments. In addition, Get Ahead Math’s web-based Student Management Center allows teachers to easily manage and track student progress.
“We, at Get Ahead Learning, are very exited to partner with such a well-known and respected educational company as Carson-Dellosa," said Get Ahead Learning company founder Walter Rose. “Our computer-based math product is already having great success with local math intervention programs. With Carson-Dellosa School Division’s distribution network, we can now reach and help students across the nation improve their math skills.“
Carson-Dellosa School Division began selling Get Ahead Math nationally on November 15, 2005. The company will use a diverse communications campaign, independent rep firms, full-time account executives, and a dedicated customer service department to market Get Ahead Math directly to schools.
