For the past 20 years, MIND has been transforming math education through a simple idea: let's teach math the way children learn -- visually and experientially. MIND's unique approach accesses the brain's innate "spatial temporal" reasoning ability, which enables students to solve mathematical problems visually.
ST Math's unique approach builds a deep conceptual understanding of math (rather than a focus on memorization) through rigorous learning and creative problem solving to engage, motivate and challenge students and help end the achievement gap. The program is designed to engage all children, regardless of socioeconomic, linguistic or cultural background.
With ST Math we aspire to:
-Advance a new generation of 21st century critical thinkers and creative problem solvers.
-Strengthen the path for youth towards STEM careers for a stronger and more diversified workforce.
-Promote cultural change to shift perceptions around math from being scary and frustrating to exciting and essential!
-Improve math performances and experiences for today's students.
-Reinforce the importance of math skills by engaging students and educators in new methods of learning and teaching.
-Empower students to become future innovators who will solve the world's most challenging problems.
