Only 3 Months After its Launch into Schools in August 2012, Think Through Learning Inc. Enrolls 1 Million Students
Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) November 15, 2012
Only 3 months after its launch into schools in August 2012, Think Through Learning Inc. announces that its web-based program for students in grades 3 through Algebra I, Think Through Math (TTM), has enrolled its one millionth subscriber.
“This milestone demonstrates our unique position in the education market,” said Kevin McAliley, CEO of Think Through Math. “Think Through Math is in demand because it’s the right program at the right time, at the right price.”
With unprecedented motivational tools and adaptive high-quality instruction, TTM is changing the way students learn math. “The goal of the program,” says McAliley, “is to prepare students for more rigorous mathematical standards, such as the TEKS, Common Core State Standards, and FCAT 2.0. But the heart of the program is designed to replace debilitating math anxiety with the concepts, skills, and practices that help students experience success.” TTM uniquely integrates online learning with access to live, certified math teachers who personally differentiate instruction when students continue to struggle.
Students in TTM typically spend about 30 minutes on the system from school or home. After an initial placement test, students follow a personalized lesson pathway that provides differentiated instruction and practice designed to prepare them for success at grade level. In most cases, students use the system two or three times a week.
TTM is used in 47 states and is the supplemental math program of choice in many of the nation’s premier districts. In August 2012, the Texas Education Agency selected TTM as the math provider of Texas Students Using Curriculum Content to Ensure Sustained Success (Texas SUCCESS) for all public school students in grades 3-8. TTM is also widely used nationally as a math intervention in middle and high school.
“Think Through Math’s powerful blend of adaptive instruction and just-in-time tutoring from live, state-certified teachers embodies the future of blended learning,” says McAililey. “We are working hard to bring it to another million students because it works, students like it, it takes the pressure off busy teachers, and it uses technology effectively.”
