Grades K-4

ST Math makes a difference here at Hudson ISD. The following information gives an idea of their background as a company and the research that went into the creation of ST Math ... Jiji.

Instructionally, any subject or concept that is presented to a child in a format that engages their attention is perceived as nonthreatening. Jiji is simply a game in some instances. Connections are made they learn new concepts throughout the year.

Welcome to the Mind Research Institutes, ST Math and JiJi.

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-12 and is designed to boost math comprehension and proficiency through visual learning. Integrating with classroom instruction and identified by the CEO-led Change the Equation as one of just four STEM programs ready to scale nationally, 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.

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.

Password & Envision Math Teacher Editions (TE)

Your password is sent to you in an email from ST Math Mind Research Institute. Normally, they send them in July. It is detailed in what you are to do. Make sure you bring this with you to your training or have on hand if you are reviewing information for later use. Keep this password in a safe place. Check SPAM if it is not in your direct email.

Teacher Editions will give some insight on the order of the games in ST MATH.
