See the Math and Grow


Help students build powerful problem solving skills in the state of Michigan through ST Math®.

 

 

Michigan's STEM Job Crisis

In a 2015 evaluation of Michigan schools, only 34% of 4th-graders and 29% of 8th-graders tested at or above a proficient level in math. By 2024, STEM jobs are estimated to grow by 16%, indicating a high demand to increase the pipeline of mathematically equipped students. How can we ensure that today's students are prepared to solve the world's most challenging problems? MIND Research Institute has a solution: our innovative ST Math program.

Over 1.2 million students and 53,000+ teachers in 47 states across the country are currently using ST Math, which has proven its impact on test scores and students’ attitudes toward mathematics.


Our partner schools are living proof that ST Math engages, motivates and challenges both students and teachers toward higher levels of math achievement. We believe in our students' potential and need help reaching the over one million students in Michigan who currently do not have the power of ST Math.

The Power of ST Math

EarlyLearning@2x.png
Deep Conceptual Understanding

ST Math teaches foundational concepts by connecting ideas to visuals and later, language. This approach allows students to build conceptual understanding without encountering language barrier.

Impact at Scale

ST Math schools show the impact an effective program can have for students of every level. ST Math leads the industry in providing educators results with authenticity, transparency and clarity.

Personalized Learning

Over 200 visual games create a unique pathway of interconnected content to provide differentiated instruction regardless of student skill level in math or language.

Creative and Rigorous Problem Solving

ST Math's standards-aligned learning program moves away from digitized math drills and challenges kids to explore non-routine problems.

Student Engagement

 The experience of conquering tricky puzzles intrinsically motivates students to tackle the next challenge with energy and enthusiasm.

Our Current Michigan Partners

ford-steam-logo.png Ford Motor Company believes that in order to develop innovative products and technologies, we need a work force skilled in the fields of science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM). Ford continues to inspire and create positive mathematical experiences for Michigan school communities by helping students grow and reach their potential through our ST Math program. Ford volunteers also encourage students for STEAM careers while facilitating and playing math games with youth and families through MIND’s Family Math Night program.
great-lakes-bay-logo.png ST Math was one of the first major STEM initiatives introduced by the regional alliance for middle school students to combat the issue on students falling behind in their proficiency levels with mathematics. Through a competitive grants process, districts received the power of ST Math by private donations from the Dow Chemical Company Foundation, the Dow Corning Foundation, Nexteer Automotive, the Saginaw Community Foundation, and the Bay Area Community Foundation. MIND and the Great Bay Lakes Regional Alliance continue to partner together to bring the power of ST Math to more Michigan students so they can grow their mathematical mindsets and competencies.

The long-term vision is to use STEM education as a springboard to increase the number of students with employable labor skills for careers in STEM. That’s why General Motors is investing in ST Math for Michigan’s 3rd-8th grade students so they can grow into their math potential.
