ST Math teaches foundational concepts visually by connecting ideas to symbols and later, language. This approach allows students to build conceptual understanding without encountering language barrier.
Massachusetts and STEM
In a 2015 evaluation of Massachusetts schools, only 54% of 4th-graders and 51% of 8th-graders tested at or above a proficient level in math. In the next ten years, STEM jobs in Massachusetts will grow more than twice the rate as non-STEM jobs. How can we ensure that today's students are mathematically equipped to meet the demands of the future workforce? MIND Research Institute has a solution: our innovative ST Math program.
