NBC News Austin Reports that Think Through Math Raises Test Scores


Think Through Math (TTM) is making waves as the leader in transforming student math understanding. NBC News-Austin, featured Think Through Math on the nightly news after learning of the program’s extraordinary effectiveness in Elgin Middle School.  In just one year, Elgin reported a 20 percent increase in test scores among African American students, and a 10 percent increase among low income students.

Elgin Principal Riza Cooper is convinced these positive results are directly related to Think Through Math:  “It was a motivator, the students wanted to do it,” said Cooper. “I think the whole community is excited, our teachers are excited, our students are excited because they are feeling success.”

TTM is available at no cost to all Texas students (grades 3-8) and teachers through the Texas SUCCESS initiative, with more than 90 percent of Texas school districts currently using the program. Nationwide more than 2.5 million students are subscribers, more than any other math software.

“Think Through Math is thrilled to see Elgin Middle School’s transformation over the past two school years,” said Clossie Ray, Vice President of Implementation Services in Texas. “This school proves that spending more time on the system and passing more lessons can truly shape student growth.  Thank you Texas SUCCESS!”

All Think Through Math students have access to instant tutoring from state certified U.S. math teachers, who tutor students online until they make a learning breakthrough.   Think Through Math is so effective and engaging that students have completed more than half a billion math problems to date. This story is one of many showcasing Think Through Math’s ability to dramatically transform the way students think and feel about mathematics.
