In the 2010–11 school year, leaders at Channelview ISD implemented Think Through Math for all students at the Kolarik Ninth Grade Center, regardless of testing level. The strategy paid off with end-of-year standardized tests indicating 90% of students proficient in algebra.
Located outside Houston, Texas Channelview Independent School District comprises 12 campuses and serves 8,000 students representing a diverse socioeconomic mix.
Math had always been a struggle at the secondary level. Channelview needed a product to support the strong math culture it had been building over the past few years.
Channelview began by implementing Think Through Math for all 610 ninth-grade students across the campus.
After implementing Think Through Math, 90% of Channelview ninth-graders tested proficient in Algebra. This success is now being replicated in sixth-through eighth-grade classes at Anthony Aguirre Junior High.
