How I Use It
During computer lab intervention, students are encouraged to pass two Think Through Math lessons. The student are then rewarded free computer time for completing the lessons. This programs acts as a motivational tool for students to be engaged in self-paced learning that will help them grow in their love and knowledge of math.
My Take
This is a great addition to teaching. Students enjoy designing their avatars and donating to their class goal and charities. I really like this program, however, I have observed that some of the questions could be worded in a more direct manner for age specific groups. In some instances, it is apparent that one of the goals is to challenge the students to analyse the information provided and use that information to find a more in depth answer. This is awesome because it stimulates critical thinking skills.
