Significantly Increasing Math Achievement: It’s Neuroscience, Not Rocket Science
For as long as teachers have been teaching math, they have been teaching it the same way. The results are stagnant achievement and a depleted STEM future workforce. MIND Research has been working on this problem for 20 years, and a recent WestEd study has proven that the unique approach of blending technology with research-based neuroscience principles is the key to both increasing achievement and helping students unlock their natural problem solving abilities. Come learn more about the unprecedented growth schools across the country are experiencing with ST Math.
