As a nonprofit social impact organization, MIND’s mission is to mathematically equip all students to solve the world’s most challenging problems. With schools across the country closing for extended periods due to COVID-19, parents are finding themselves in a challenging situation on multiple fronts.
Some schools and districts have a remote learning plan in place to meets the educational needs of students. MIND has provided free access to ST Math for any school that requests it during closures.
However, not all schools and districts are equipped to meet remote learning needs in a comprehensive way. Parents may be looking for online resources to help their children keep learning while they are at home.
ST Math is an award-winning visual instructional program that leverages the brain's innate spatial-temporal reasoning ability to solve mathematical problems. ST Math’s unique, patented approach provides students with equitable access to learning through challenging puzzles, non-routine problem solving, and informative feedback.
If your child’s school is not already using ST Math, we are providing free access to our ST Math Homeschool program from now through June 30th for families across the country. Parents can access this offer from our Coronavirus Resources page at www.stmath.com/coronavirus.
In addition to the program itself, you will have access to a library of ST Math resources, and our amazing ST Math support team. All resources and updates will be linked at the aforementioned Coronavirus Resources page. At the end of that period, you can choose whether or not you’d like to purchase an annual subscription to ST Math—we will not collect your payment information or autobill you.
In the past 48 hours alone, we've added 1,100 new schools and 3,700 new families to the ST Math community.
We've also created a Facebook group for ST Math parents who are leading their children's learning at home. You're invited to join that community and become part of the conversation at www.facebook.com/groups/stmathhome/.
As our CEO Brett Woudenberg said recently, “We stand ready to help parents, schools, and districts with access to meaningful math learning while students are home. We are deeply grateful to our ST Math community of donors and partners for their continued support, and we hope to be of service during this challenging time.”
If you are able at this time, please consider donating to MIND Research Institute--as a non-profit organization, we truly appreciate your support in service of our educators, students and parents across the country. Contributions of any size are welcome and all donations go directly towards programming. You can make a donation here.
