Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) May 10, 2012
Think Through Math, a Pittsburgh-based, online math intervention program, is the winner of the 2012 Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) CODiE Award for Best Mathematics Instructional Solution.
The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software and digital content industries, announced Think Through Math’s win as one of 29 CODiE Award winners in the education technology category. An SIIA CODiE Award win for ed tech companies is an especially prestigious honor, as each award winner has been selected by a combination of educators, who act as initial judges by selecting finalists from among all nominees, and SIIA members-company peers, who vote to select the winners from among the finalists.
The groundbreaking online math program is a powerful supplemental curriculum that personalizes student learning with unprecedented levels of differentiation. The program focuses intervention with personalized learning pathways, explicit instruction, meaningful practice, unparalleled motivational tools and unlimited access to LIVE, state-credentialed teachers (including Spanish-speaking teachers). Working in concert, these distinctive features transform the way underperforming students engage with mathematics.
We are honored that the program has been recognized by the technology and information industry with a CODiE Award in the highly competitive Best Mathematics Instructional Solution category
