ST Math is a PreK-8 visual instructional program that leverages the brain's innate spatial-temporal* reasoning ability to solve mathematical problems.

Created over 20 years ago by MIND Research Institute, a nonprofit social impact organization specializing in neuroscience and education research, ST Math presents students with challenging puzzles, non-routine problem solving, and informative feedback.

The neuroscientists, mathematicians, and educators who created ST Math harnessed the power of games to allow all students to succeed in math and develop perseverance and problem-solving skills. Learn more in The Power of Games.

Through independent, third-party validations as well as annual, transparent evaluations of results of all ST Math school cohorts, the careful use of language, scaffolding of content, and immediate informative feedback has been shown to repeatedly double or triple growth in math proficiency.

*Spatial-temporal -- the ST in ST Math -- is the innate ability to visualize and manipulate images through time and space.

MIND logo and mission statement

MIND Research Institute cares deeply about changing the way people feel about math.

Currently, 70% of students exiting K-12 education are not proficient in math. Having a deep conceptual understanding of math creates the problem-solving foundation for success in STEM, in future careers, and in life. We are passionate about creating comprehensive solutions that work and can be implemented and distributed to students so that all will exit PreK-12 education proficient in math.
