Transforming the Way We Teach Math

A non-profit organization called the MIND Research Institute is looking to change the way we teach math.  Matthew Peterson in this TED talk discusses how all students, especially students whose first language is not English, benefit when math is taught them through a game format with no language or instructions and immediate informative feedback.  He’s the creator of ST Math – a program that just does that.  What are students’ rewards for completing levels on ST Math?  Harder math problems.
