On Wednesday, February 26, the Chicago Board of Education authorized an agreement with Think Through Learning Inc., the parent company of Think Through Math (TTM). Approved in a 6-0 vote, the agreement stipulates that Think Through Math may be used to support diverse learners in multiple grades.
Designed to support students with differentiated instruction, TTM provides an unparalleled student-driven learning experience that includes instant access to live tutoring. Web-based and easy to implement, the program is expected to launch as early as next month.
“We’re excited about partnering with the educators of Chicago Public Schools,” said Traci Burgess, EVP Sales of Think Through Learning Inc. “Our software complements classroom instruction by providing personalized lesson pathways and a motivational system that’s proven to engage students and accelerate their achievement.”
Think Through Math continuously adapts to each student’s unique learning level so that students are always studying at the level where they can succeed. After students have tried several ways to solve a problem but continue to struggle, they receive instant individual tutoring from certified U.S. math teachers who will work with them until they make a learning breakthrough. TTM’s classroom-experienced math teachers, many of whom are bilingual, help students up to 90 hours each week.
“Think Through Math has a record of improving the trajectory for diverse learners in classrooms all around the country,” said Barbara Byrd-Bennett, CEO of Chicago Public Schools. “We’re looking forward to seeing results as teachers and students embrace this unique solution.”
TTM is currently used by two-and-a-half million students in classrooms throughout the United States. The groundbreaking software sits at the core of 1:1 initiatives and blended learning strategies aimed at closing the achievement gap for all students.
