Cool Tool | Think Through Math Giving

CREDIT Think Through MathRecognized as one of the industry’s most respected and fastest-growing supplemental math curriculum, Think Through Math is an interactive, math instructional system for grades 3 through Algebra 1. Comprised of engaging and rigorous game-based math lessons and built around state and Common Core standards, TTM is supported by online math teachers to assist struggling students. Since launching in 2012, TTM’s multi-tiered motivation has helped to increase engagement, build self-esteem and foster deep conceptual understanding among more than 2.5 million students across the U.S. But TTM is going beyond just building math skills with its built-in charity points program helping students develop decision-making skills, boosting confidence — and laying the groundwork for a lifetime of philanthropic thinking and practice. The TTM charity points program provides students with the opportunity to convert the points they earn by completing lessons into dollars that they can donate to a charity that they select. Despite the fact that many TTM students are managing their own socioeconomic challenges, many teachers are finding that supporting others in need is helping their students develop an increased sense of responsibility and accountability. TTM’s charitable giving program has resulted in tens of thousands of dollars in annual donations to featured charities including Big Brothers Big Sisters, The Boys and Girls Clubs of America, Make-A-Wish, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, World Wildlife Fund, No Kid Hungry, The Wounded Warrior Project and PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center.
