Teacher Review For Think Through Math

This is the first year I have actually pushed TTM on my students. The result: They love it! The more lessons the do, the more prizes they earn. My struggling students have their personal pathways that allow them to excel and earn points.

How I Use It
My students are assigned 2 lessons per week. Each lessons takes between 15-30 minutes. I can go online and see which lessons they pass and which ones they don't. If I see a student is struggling on their current pathway, I will create a new pathway for them and can pull teks from across the board and grades. It allows each student to work on their appropriate grade level to close gaps.
My Take
I truly enjoy TTM. The kids seem to like it and I have hear a lot "Oh remember I did this on TTM" when I'm teaching a new concept. It's nice to have previous background knowledge.
