Fielder Elementary Student Wins Texas Summer THINK ChallengeFielder Elementary Student Wins Texas Summer THINK Challenge2015-10-05T15:17:25Z<div class="ExternalClassD84C927CFEE54EE9931E87F182977DF3"><p><img alt="DSC_0080.JPG" src="/PublishingImages/Lists/latestnews/AllItems/DSC_0080.JPG" style="margin:5px;width:256px;vertical-align:auto;float:right;" />Fielder Elementary student <strong>Joshua Okolo</strong> used the summer months to strengthen his math skills and participate in Think Through Math's <strong>2015 Texas Summer THINK Challenge</strong>. </p><p>Over the course of the eight-week challenge, Okolo completed and passed 158 math lessons, which equates to approximately 52 hours and 2,047 complex math problems. Because of this, Okolo was named the Grand Prize winner of the Challenge out of all students in Texas, and was recently awarded a Samsung Galaxy Tablet by Karen Tillett, and instructional coach with Think Through Math. </p><p>While students eagerly await summer vacation, teachers and parents know it can also be the beginning of the "summer slide." Research shows that the average child loses 1.8 months of math skills over the summer break, and it takes three to six weeks of teaching to get students back to where they were at the end of the prior year. </p><p>Based on the Texas TEKS standards, Think Through Math combines live teacher support, unique student motivation, and engaging, adaptive instruction in a web-based learning system that is proven to help students learn—and love—math!</p><p>For more information, visit the <a href=""><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Think Through Math website</span></a>. </p></div>
