Our students’ ability to achieve this level of math proficiency can be a game changer for them in their academic and professional lives.
Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) May 27, 2015
Think Through Learning, creators of Think Through Math, a web-based math instructional system for grades 3 and above, announced today that students using the program across the U.S. have surpassed one billion math problems in the 2014-15 school year. More than 2.9 million students across 13,000 schools across the country are enrolled in TTM as part of their math curriculum. Students solved an average of 8 to 10 million math problems per day in order to reach this milestone.
“This is a major achievement for us, but more importantly for the teachers and students who have embraced Think Through Math to deepen their understanding and improve learning outcomes,” said Kevin McAliley, CEO of Think Through Math. “What’s even more significant is the fact that many TTM lessons include multi-step, complex problems that require higher order thinking – our students’ ability to achieve this level of math proficiency can be a game changer for them in their academic and professional lives.”
The one billion problems solved this year represents an increase of 300% since 2012. In addition to the number of problems solved, Think Through Math students have also received millions of real-time on-line teaching sessions from Think Through Math’s certified math teachers, which is an integral part of the program.
As the industry’s most respected supplemental math curriculum, Think Through Math provides rigorous adaptive lessons built upon each state’s learning standards, and is supported by the unique functionality of on-line math teachers to assist struggling students in real-time. Available to students from school and home, the system’s embedded incentive program increases engagement, builds self-esteem and fosters deep conceptual understanding for sustainable improvements in outcomes. In addition, a charitable giving feature allows students to convert their points into donations to select charities. Think Through Math has received numerous awards since its introduction.
