FreeThrowsTM is a unique student engagement model utilizing a team-based approach to student learning. The first FreeThrowsTM application module developed is a web-based math fluency program aligned to Arizona’s Common Core Standards for Mathematics.
Students work together as a team to answer math problems in an engaging environment and the program adapts to each student’s ability. The teacher acts as the coach and facilitates the start of the game and helps students set goals for team success. As students accurately answer and complete problems, points are registered toward a common goal. By emphasizing teamwork, FreeThrowsTM encourages students to work together to answer problems, a skill necessary for college- and career-success.
