Low-cost solution to basic facts problem

Your budget is tight. Your lowest performing students can’t catch up in math because they haven’t mastered basic facts. Your AYP scores suffer from under-performing sub-groups. What are you going to do?

iLearn introduces ThinkFast! , a practical and cost effective solution for basic fact fluency. Students quickly achieve both accuracy and fluency through individualized instruction - and learn efficient strategies, not just the answers. At- risk students achieve fluency with just 15 minutes a day on the computer. The automated system makes it easy for teachers and administrators to track results.

Teaching strategies…then fluency

Who says computer-based programs are only good for playing games and rote drill? With ThinkFast! , your students learn effective and efficient strategies before they start systematic practice to build fluency. Our unique “scaffolding” structure teaches conceptual strategies, enabling students to “practice thinking mathematically” until they become fluent, in accordance with NCTM recommendations. The result is better fluency for all students as well as better number sense and better foundation for mental calculation and estimation.

No more finger counting

ThinkFast! provides explicit individualized instruction shown to be highly effective with at-risk students that allows them to quit old habits - such as counting on fingers - and replace them with more efficient strategies. This enables more meaningful practice for fluency that pays off. In short, ThinkFast! gives students an efficient strategy and a rewarding way to practice.

Innovative technology

ThinkFast! uses technology in an innovative way that makes it much easier to quickly bring low-achieving students up to speed.

Here’s how:

  • It uses explicit, scaffolded instruction in a multimedia format to teach students efficient strategies for solving the basic facts.
  • It provides extensive practice that focuses on the application of the strategies, not just rote repetition.
  • Practice is provided using an innovative, research-based format that minimizes errors to reduce frustration and increase the rate of fluency development.
  • Practice is provided using an innovative, research-based format that minimizes errors to reduce frustration and increase the rate of fluency development.
