ST Math

  • Spatial-Temporal Approach: ST Math’s patented approach starts by teaching foundational math concepts visually, then connects the ideas to symbols, language and robust classroom discourse.

  • Deep Conceptual Understanding: ST Math is mastery based, meaning students must solve all problems in each level correctly before accessing the next level. This approach, coupled with ST Math’s visual learning ensures that students are building and demonstrating a strong conceptual math foundation.

  • Informative Feedback: In ST Math, action is critical and mistakes are the perfect opportunity for learning. Animated informative feedback offers an intrinsically motivating learning experience that shows students the mathematical consequences of each answer.

  • Standards-Aligned: ST Math games include more than 35,000 puzzles that align to all state standards, with learning objectives that target key grade-level concepts and skills. The program is flexible and can fit easily into many different curriculum implementations.

  • For all students: ST Math’s visual approach makes the program accessible and effective for all learners, independent of skill level or language.
