Developing Our MathMINDs was a series of conversations and resources about math that is intended to be a journey of growth with families over several weeks. Each week, MIND's Lead Mathematician and Product Director Brandon Smith and Content Development Manager Nina Wu talked about the adjustments families made to learning at home during the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic, and the opportunities that situation provided for changing our relationship with math.
Each week, both the video conversations and resource links will be posted here on the MIND Blog, as well as on our YouTube page.
In week three, Brandon and Nina explain feedback, how it's built into the ST Math learning model, and also how to infuse it into any learning activity.
The following videos feature a couple of our ST Math families demonstrating activities that provide feedback:

We Want to Hear From You!
We look forward to embarking on this mathematical journey together with families, and we want to hear about your challenges, success, questions and experiences along the way!
We'd love for you to share your own examples of activities that involve feedback! You could describe the activity, or act in out in a video like the ones above.
To reply, you can either comment on the blog below provide a link to your video, head over to our Facebook group, or comment on YouTube. Make sure to provide a link to your own video if you create one!
