How to Setup ST Math at Home

ST Math Education

Good day Muskoday Parents and Students. As you have probably already heard we have implemented a new supplemental Math program here at Muskoday First Nation Community School called ST Math. Here is an excerpt from the Website that explains what ST Math is.

Reimagining Math Education

Spatial-Temporal (ST) Math® is the leader in visual math instruction and represents the highest quality and most effective blended learning math solution in K-12 education.

Created by MIND Research Institute, ST Math is game-based instructional software for K-5 and secondary intervention and is designed to boost math comprehension and proficiency through visual learning. Integrating with classroom instruction, ST Math incorporates the latest research in learning and the brain and promotes mastery-based learning and mathematical understanding. The ST Math software games use interactive, graphically-rich animations that visually represent mathematical concepts to improve conceptual understanding and problem-solving skills.

Whether in the classroom, computer lab or at home, learning never stops with ST Math. When teachers bring ST Math into the classroom, projected onto a screen or interactive whiteboard, the software games help students make connections between the visual representations from ST Math and symbolic representations found in their core instruction. With the touch functionality of ST Math students experience an even greater level of interactivity. With ST Math, learning continues outside of school too, as teachers can assign specific math objectives in the software for homework.


What is Spatial-Temporal Reasoning? Born out of neuroscience research at the University of California, Irvine, MIND’s unique approach accesses the brain’s innate “spatial-temporal” reasoning ability. This ability, which lies at the core of innovative thinking and sophisticated problem-solving, allows the brain to hold visual, mental representations in short-term memory and to evolve them in both space and time, thinking multiple steps ahead. MIND’s approach consists of language-independent, animated representations of math concepts delivered via the Spatial-Temporal (ST) Math® software games.


 

Who is JiJi?

JiJi is the beloved penguin in the ST Math software games. Children help JiJi get past obstacles by solving math puzzles – and they associate JiJi with challenge, learning and the thrill of success. Every time a child demonstrates understanding of a math concept, JiJi crosses the screen, signaling success and leading the student to the next more challenging puzzle.

Here at Muskoday First Nation Community School the ST Math program is installed on all of the student computers and laptops. Now if a student wishes to go on ST Math at home here is the 3 ways you can access ST Math
