Think Through Solves 1 Billion Math Problems
Students embrace classroom program, complete millions of complex problems daily during 2014-15 school year
Think Through Learning, creators of Think Through Math, a web-based math instructional system for grades 3 and above, announced today that students using the program across the U.S. have surpassed one billion math problems in the 2014-15 school year. More than 2.9 million students across 13,000 schools across the country are enrolled in TTM as part of their math curriculum. Students solved an average of 8 to 10 million math problems per day in order to reach this milestone.
“This is a major achievement for us, but more importantly for the teachers and students who have embraced Think Through Math to deepen their understanding and improve learning outcomes,” said Kevin McAliley, CEO of Think Through Math. “What’s even more significant is the fact that many TTM lessons include multi-step, complex problems that require higher order thinking – our students’ ability to achieve this level of math proficiency can be a game changer for them in their academic and professional lives.”
The one billion problems solved this year represents an increase of 300% since 2012. In addition to the number of problems solved, Think Through Math students have also received millions of real-time on-line teaching sessions from Think Through Math’s certified math teachers, which is an integral part of the program
