How I Use It
I love this as an extension activity so that the students can try to apply what I have taught to questions that are asked in different ways. The students have worked on Think Through Math in different ways as RTI for all levels, For station work and they are 100% engaged and love working on the lessons at their own pace so they don't feel rushed. The RTI levels the students all on it's own so if they are really low it scaffolds for you and gets them to the level needed with amazing support and lessons for them to be successful.
My Take
I love how the levels change for each student and they have the opportunity to pre-test so that if they are mastering the subject they can move on and if they do not understand the material at all they can get tutoring and extra help for the scaffolding needed. I also am taking full advantage of the reports on how many lessons attempted and what level each student is on. The reports on what each student is struggling on individually help those teachers with multiple students and can help pinpoint what each student needs while keeping them well engaged in the learning. The students have many contest to keep the competition up not only between classes but other schools and other grade levels. The students are loving learning in the sense of a game type app.
