This web-based math curriculum is designed to establish strong thinking skills for students in grades 3 through Algebra 1. It was developed by teachers and technology specialists to help students prepare for Common Core standards and rigorous new assessments. Think Through Math can be customized to meet the needs of individual students.

Reader Testimony: 

“For two years in a row, I found that more than 80 percent of students using Think Through Math scored proficient or advanced on the Pennsylvania State Assessment. We acknowledge that Think Through Math’s quality instruction—and emphasis on individualized, differentiated math instruction—is key to the success of our students. Unlike many other supplemental programs, Think Through Math provides quality instruction with meaningful practice.”

The rigor of the Common Core requires a depth of thinking that is unfamiliar to many students. To begin teaching to these new standards, teachers must invoke different tools and methods. In this web seminar originally broadcast on June 6, 2013, administrators from Howard County (Md.) Public School System shared their phased Common Core transition plan, as well as their collection of online resources for students, teachers, and administrators.

Providing truly differentiated, individualized instruction has been a goal of educators for decades, but new technologies available today are empowering schools to implement this form of education in a way never before possible. Intelligent adaptive learning software is able to tailor instruction according to each student’s unique needs, understandings, and interests while remaining grounded in sound pedagogy.

The Common Core State Standards are going to require levels of thinking and conceptual understanding to which many students have never been measured. To prepare students for what is to come, instructional procedures need to change. This web seminar, originally broadcast on April 25, 2013, explored the benefits of introducing game-based instructional software in readying students for success with the Common Core and the next generation of assessments.

Blended learning is a disruptive innovation that has been changing how teachers teach and how schools operate. The Innosight Institute and its founder Michael Horn predicted its emergence and believe blended learning will continue to grow at a rapid pace due to the success it brings to students. Rocky Mount Prep (N.C.) saw tremendous growth in its elementary students in several months after supplementing traditional teaching with adaptive online math software.

With the adaptive learning environment, students build comprehension and fluency through highly individualized instruction.

Out of the 45 states that have adopted the Common Core, only 11 states and the District of Columbia have high school math graduation requirements that align to the new standards, says a new study. Thirteen more states are only partially aligned, leaving 22 that have yet to complete any steps to meet the graduation standards, according to the study, co-sponsored by the National School Boards Association’s Center for Public Education and the nonprofit, Change the Equation.
