McGraw-Hill Education has acquired Key Curriculum, a privately held developer of mathematics learning technology in the K-12 and higher education markets. The terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
The move will allow MHE to integrate its research-based curricula with Key Curriculum’s digital programs and tools, something that will broaden MHE’s capability to build interactive, data-focused math programs and expand its offerings that address the Common Core State Standards. “With the advent of the Common Core State Standards and an increased national focus on the teaching of math, the acquisition of Key Curriculum allows us to better meet the evolving needs of digitally minded students, instructors, and schools,” said Lloyd G. “Buzz” Waterhouse, CEO of MHE.
The company will continue to sell Key Curriculum products as standalone solutions, regardless of the curriculum adopted by the institution and its product development team will continue to be based at the company’s office in Emeryville, Calif.
