Memorizing math content as a checklist or set of skills is not how the brain actually learns. Research from the MIND Research Institute shows there is a better way. Several programs for prekindergarten through grade 8 are available for supplemental use, homeschool, and even summer school. After successful implementation, students will develop a deep conceptual understanding and be able to approach new concepts with confidence and a growth mindset. Get started today and change your math culture.

It has been over a year since the COVID-19 pandemic shut-down school districts nationwide. The U.S. shifted into a state of loss and then grief. Loss of what we thought was stable including income, job security, and daily routines. Loss of over a year’s worth of social plans we had for ourselves including graduation parties, family reunions, and weddings. Plans have been put on hold repeatedly and hearts have felt the heaviness of disappointment non-stop.
