"Our strategy is to put radically improved digital learning tools in the hands of teachers and students," said Andrew R. Coulson, president of MIND's education division. "Visionary community and corporate partners like Hyundai and TELACU are leading this charge to math success for all students, changing attitudes about math and creating the next generation of problem solvers, innovators, and critical thinkers."
Research by the University of California, Irvine shows that early math skills are the key predictor of later academic success and increase graduation rates. Moreover, math literacy is essential for students entering 21st century jobs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics – also known as "STEM" fields.
MIND's ST Math program is already used by more than 200,000
California students, including 30,000 in Los Angeles Unified School District.
