Fill the Math GAPS
“Our mission is to help young people find the joy of Math and the confidence to solve any problem.”
Matt Miklius, PhD – Founder of The Think Tank
I personally recommend the Fill the Math GAPS tool. My 8th Grade class received their highest NWEA Math MAP scores ever in 2024. They were 18 points above the national grade level mean!! If your students are committed to this amazing program, it will work wonders!

Middle School Lead Math & Science Teacher
I was SO excited to share our Math testing results. I had to double check I pulled the right report because we saw SO much growth in our MAP Math scores. We are all thrilled and so grateful for this program.

The two Catholic (middle) schools that are currently using the Fill the Math GAPS tool have found it to be very effective in the retention of math skills….Our goal at the Catholic Schools Office is to have ALL of our middle school students leverage this tool to enhance their math competency as they enter high school.
