Today our friends at MIND Research Institute announced the launch of their new educational blog, Sums & Solutions. Their new blog will feature discussions on a variety of topics from common core to blended learning, and include posts by MIND staff, educators who use ST Math, and guest bloggers. Some of the guest bloggers already lined up include Linda Rosen, PH.D., CEO of Change the Equation; and our very own Tom Vander Ark, CEO of Getting Smart.

“We hope that the blog will be an open forum about how we can all work together and learn from one another to accelerate a national transformation in math education,” said Matthew Peterson, MIND Research co-founder, chief operating officer, and creator of ST Math instructional software program.

Peterson believes that we can “crack the code” on helping all kids succeed by simply identifying what works and lessons learned in education. This will create pathways that will help students construct the knowledge and skills to prepare them for college and career.

“Considering MIND Research’s dedication to helping all students, including those most in need; Sums & Solutions will be a great tool for idea generation and conversation,” said Tom Vander Ark.

For more information regarding Sums & Solutions please see the full press release below.

MIND Research is Getting Smart Advocacy Partner.
