Think Through Learning, creators of Think Through Math, a web-based math instructional system for grades 3 and above, has been recognized as a 2015 Tyton Growth50 company. The Tyton Growth50 celebrates innovative organizations that are achieving a combination of strong financial results, market share growth, and brand awareness performance. As one of 50 organizations included on the list, this achievement marks a great milestone in Think Through Math’s evolution.
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 online 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 points into donations to select charities. Think Through Math has received numerous awards since its introduction.
“This recognition validates the measurable and meaningful difference that Think Through Math’s on-demand, live teacher support is providing for struggling students,” commented Kevin McAliley, CEO of Think Through Math. “Our team is passionate about the work that we are doing in nearly 170,000 classrooms throughout the United States to support both teachers and students in math achievement. We are very honored to be included on such an auspicious list of technology companies that are making a significant impact in the education market.”
This is the inaugural year for the Tyton Growth50, a list curated by Tyton Partners senior professionals, who have several decades of deep transactional and advisory experience. The team assessed hundreds of companies to arrive at the list of finalists. The Growth50 organizations were announced at the Tyton Education Summit in New York City on June 2, an event that convenes a diverse set of entrepreneurs and established companies, investors and foundations, and K-12 and postsecondary institutions from across the education sector to engage in substantive discussions about the mission-critical issues facing the space.
“The education sector is in the midst of an epic period of investment activity and national discussion. A steady stream of tenacious entrepreneurs and innovative product and service models are emerging, but scaling distribution remains a fundamental challenge. The Tyton Growth50 companies are clearing this hurdle,” said Adam Newman, Co-Founder and Managing Partner at Tyton Partners. “We have much to learn from what these organizations are doing to scale their initial innovations.”
