Think Through Learning announced today that Think Through Math won the 2014 SIIA CODiE Award for Best Mathematics Instructional Solution.
The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software and digital content industries, announced Think Through Math as one of the CODiE Award winners in the education technology category. An SIIA CODiE Award win for ed tech companies is an especially prestigious honor, as each award winner has been selected by a combination of educators, who act as initial judges by selecting finalists from among all nominees, and SIIA members-company peers, who vote to select the winners from among the finalists.
“We are thrilled to receive our second CODiE Award for Best Math Instructional Solution in three years,” said Kevin McAliley, the CEO of Think Through Math. “This wonderful honor validates the 12 years of hard work and research that our team of US teachers and technologists has put in to create our highly effective math learning system. Our team of 140 Thinkers is passionately committed to motivating students to think mathematically and develop higher-order thinking and problem solving skills that will transform the way they perform in school and beyond. With this wonderful reward we will rededicate ourselves to serving students and teachers across the US.”
“SIIA’s 2014 Education CODiE Award winners are some of the most innovative, high-impact education products out there,” said SIIA Vice President for the Education Division Karen Billings. “We congratulate all of this year’s CODiE Award winners, and thank them for the contributions they have made to the education industry.”

About the SIIA CODiE™ Awards
The SIIA CODiE™ Awards, originally called the Excellence in Software Awards, were established in 1986 by the Software Publishers Association (SPA), now the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), so that pioneers of the then-nascent software industry could evaluate and honor each other’s work. Since then, the CODiE Awards program has carried out the same purpose – to showcase the software and information industry’s finest products and services and to honor excellence in corporate achievement.
