How I Use It
We are a 1:1 MacBook school so we are able to have students work on this program quite a bit. After modeling how to notebook, students spend 30-45 minutes at a time, twice a week on Think Through Math. The math is leveled to each student, not just by the grade level they tested at, but where they're missing knowledge on each individual topic. There are some problems where students simply solve but there a many that require high processing skills. It does take up a lot of time, but I truly feel it is well worth it.
I really enjoy this tool and feel my students are making a lot a growth because of it. TTM has an awesome troubleshooting team that quickly answer my many questions. The only time I have struggled with with my LD students that have high math ability but low reading/comprehension skills. The program can be set to Spanish for ENL students or to be read aloud for those that need it. I feel extremely lucky to have access to TTM.
