How I Use It
I have used Think Through Math for about 3 years now and love the growth students show! Each year, I require the students to pass three lessons every week. It is very easy to check that each student has completed this task. Students are given an on-grade level pathway after completing the Placement Test. I have devices in the classroom that students may use to work on the lessons when they are done with classwork. Requiring the students to pass 3 lessons a week has worked very well. I have noticed if more lessons are required, students do not complete the task.
I really love this tool! Students in my class have shown growth by using the program and my state scores have come up. Students love the games they are allowed to play to strengthen their math skills. The lessons take the students step by step through processes that make sense to the students. Sure, they grown because I require them to work on the math using the program, but the amount of learning occurring is worth it!
