U.S. math education is facing significant challenges. With only 30 percent of U.S. students proficient in algebra, we are busy working to solve this crisis. Even with the growth in proficiency doubling and tripling at schools implementing ST Math, we won’t be satisfied until ALL students are advanced in math. Rather than the traditional math instruction, ST Math allows students to gain and expand understanding through discovery and play. Watch as our Co-founder and Chief Operating Officer Matthew Peterson takes the audience at District Administration Leadership Institute through a first hand experience of ST math and uncovers the importance of building schemas in math education.
