There are no words for math mastery

There are no words for math mastery

American children are falling far behind other countries in math. We must reverse this trend in order to build a strong workforce. MIND Research Institute determined that language can thwart a child’s ability to learn basic math concepts. The Spatial-Temporal (ST) Math program is based on a visual, non-language based approach to teaching math. 

ST Math improves more than math scores

MIND's approach uses language-independent, animated representations of math concepts delivered via software games. Language, culture, learning disabilities—none of these stand in the way of mastering math concepts with ST Math.

  • The program has proven to double and even triple growth in math proficiency scores, compared to students not using ST Math
  • Students are encouraged to make multiple attempts to solve problems to promote persistence
  • The self-paced software has a built-in performance-tracking system, closely aligned to state and Common Core standards
  • While improving math scores is important, ST Math also helps students develop critical thinking skills and become determined problem solvers, giving them skills and confidence to compete in the digital economy

Cisco has worked with MIND Research Institute since 2004. The ST Math program has grown from 55,000 students in 2007 to over 1 million students in 2017. Taking a full digitization perspective, Cisco has also funded technology that promotes more collaboration and data collection.

  • Cisco helped ST Math evolve to a cloud-based solution, increasing program quality, decreasing costs, and supporting rapid scalability
  • 44,000 teachers can connect to live training webinars and any-time training modules using Cisco collaboration technology
  • Infrastructure improvements, including collaboration technology, will enable MIND to save an estimated $1.4 million over five years in time and travel
  • Equipment donations helped MIND roll out its National School Scholarship Alliance expansion to bring ST Math to more underserved schools

The ever-expanding reach of ST Math
