What is ST Math? http://www.mindresearch.org/stmath/

ST Math®: K-6 grade-leveled instructional software is designed to help all students reach math proficiency through self-paced, language-independent, mastery-based objectives. It is closely aligned to state and Common Core State Standards for Mathematics and integrates with core instruction. ST Math games use interactive, graphically-rich animations that visually represent mathematical concepts to improve conceptual understanding and problem-solving skills. Through a 1:1 scaffolded learning environment, games gradually increase in difficulty and provide immediate feedback. ST Math features embedded assessments, detailed reporting of student learning patterns and whiteboard integration. Teacher-guided instruction integrating ST Math software activities in the classroom rounds out MIND’s blended learning model. In addition to accessing the software on desktop or laptop computers, teachers and students can access ST Math on supported tablets, enabling anywhere, anytime learning. With touch functionality, ST Math further immerses students in a richly interactive, hands-on and gesture-based learning experience.
