Thrive math presents content at each grade level in units that focus on developing students’ understanding of mathematical concepts and processes, fluency skills, and ability to solve real-world problems. Units are framed by an essential question (e.g., “What does multiplication mean?”) and are made up of lessons that include teacher-led and student-directed activities. Lessons include animations, videos, and learning games to engage students and frame content. Engaging digital manipulatives (e.g., number lines) are integrated throughout instruction. Students have access to audio readers and interactive math tools, such as number lines, place value charts, and graphic organizers. Students may share their work with the class using the program’s “Gallery” feature.
Teachers have access to a set of tools to facilitate learning in a 1:1 environment. The “Eyes on the Teacher” tool alerts students that the teacher requires their attention. “Follow Me” and “Stop Line” tools allow teachers to control students’ navigation and progress. When using Follow Me, teachers control students’ navigation through the lesson. Stop Line allows teachers to place a “stop line” that prevents students from progressing past a particular point in a lesson.
About Thrive Math*
A focused, rigorous progression of concepts essential for math comprehension grounds the Thrive math program, engineered to meet the new standards. Engaging and age‐appropriate lesson animations and videos, explicit definitions of key terms and concepts, and scaffolded problem‐solving with instant and targeted feedback ensure students are ready for high‐stakes testing.
Interactive lessons that balance conceptual understanding with procedural fluency ask learners to make sense of real‐life questions as they figure out, engage with, and look for structure and meaning in the world around them.
