What is ST Math?

ST Math is a PreK, K-5, and Middle School visual instructional program that leverages the brain's innate spatial-temporal reasoning ability to solve mathematical problems.

With ST Math, students build deep conceptual understanding, and schools see proven, repeatable results.

"The engagement of teachers and students with ST Math has grown from exploration to absolute excitement and competition!!  ST math is not viewed by our school community as simply “an online platform;” it is part of our everyday life, part of our curriculum, and a highlight of our students’ daily lives!"
DeeDee Dyer, Teacher in New York
"[ST Math] is “fun” but still standards aligned."
Elisabeth LaMotte, Principal in Louisiana
"This program provides joyous learning while providing enrichment focusing on conceptual understanding"
Jim Greene, Principal in Ohio
"Everyone is able to engage in the games and everyone is learning.  One thing that has been successful about our ST Math implementation is using it for a combination of classwork and homework.  The class time allows us to help students with games they might be stuck on and to see exactly what they’re working on.  The homework time ensures that students get more done and are making more regular progress."
Ms. Makiya, Teacher in New York
"The most successful thing about ST Math at Glades is that EVERY math teacher uses it to some degree, exposing every student to spatial temporal math and a new way to engage in math."
Valerie Myers-Crawford, Coach in Florida
"The trainings were fantastic and allowed my teachers to feel confident in using the program."
Lauren Jack, Administrator in Florida
