Think Through Learning, creators of the award-winning Think Through Math program, heads into “back to school” season as the fastest growing supplemental math program in the U.S. and one of Pittsburgh’s fastest growing companies. Driven by double-digit revenue growth over the past five years and three-year revenue growth of 106%, Think Through Math addresses the pressing needs of students and teachers across the country for technology-based learning solutions focused on math remediation.

The expansion of its powerful software system to three million students in more than 180,000 classrooms has earned Think Through Learning a spot on the annual Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing U.S. companies for the third consecutive year. Think Through Learning has also been recognized as the #13 fastest growing technology company by the Pittsburgh Business Times. In addition to receiving accolades for growth, Think Through Learning earned its place among Pittsburgh’s “Top Workplaces” by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette — a designation determined solely by employee surveys regarding company culture.

“With our roots firmly planted in Pittsburgh and a strong momentum pushing us forward, our greatest achievement has been our collective commitment to building an adaptive Math solution that produces amazing results,” said Lou Piconi, co-founder of Think Through Learning. “While we are pleased with these accolades as an affirmation of our growth, we know that this is an outcome of our dedication to successful implementations at the district and state level.”

Think Through Learning’s plans call for continued growth in 2016-17, affirming its place as one of Pittsburgh’s most exciting technology companies.

Think Through Math provides states and school districts across the nation with a cost-effective, classroom-based, online math learning program that features innovative student motivation, adaptive curriculum, and on-demand support from live bilingual teachers. With customized versions for each state’s learning standards, states that have integrated TTM as part of ongoing math improvement initiatives have seen significant improvements in student performance and test scores. The system provides access to actionable data and the resources teachers need to facilitate instruction and motivate students toward math achievement. In addition, Think Through Math’s distinctive charity points program, which allows students to convert the points they earn into charitable dollars, has resulted in more than $300,000 donated to local and national charities since inception.

“Our focus has been on efficacy and the fidelity of our implementations. This work has helped us create lasting relationships, high levels of retention, and an inspiring collection of success stories,” said Kevin McAliley, CEO of Think Through Learning. “Think Through Learning’s culture, growth and recipe for success revolve around one goal: helping students learn and love math.”
