Think Through Math, or TTM, is a state-funded, Web-based supplemental math program that offers third- through eighth-grade students personalized learning, instruction and practice through live interaction with state-credentialed teachers. This Texas Success program supports Texas public school students of all skill levels.
TTM is designed for students preparing to sit for the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness, or STAAR, by offering individualized learning for students at grade-level and above. The program also supports students working below grade-level, those who find traditional classrooms demotivating and those who love working on computers.
TTM allows students to practice math instruction and provides access to all the necessary lessons required for them to be successful at grade-level. The program takes into account each student’s skills and creates an individualized learning path. Some of the areas covered by the TTM include fluency with fractions, whole numbers and geometry.
Students are advised to use the resources within TTM at least three times a week while at home or school for 60 to 90 minutes each time. Resources within the TTM program are designated Lab, Home, Extended and Blended. The Lab resource targets groups of students in the computer lab, while Home offers students a chance to study wherever there is an Internet connection. Extended offers before- and after-school math programs and Blended is the technology station in the program.
