Students at San Miguel School have the opportunity to practice problem-solving and other math skills through a web-based program, designed and implemented by the MIND Research Institute, a neuroscience and education research-based non-profit corporation. The program, Spatial Temporal (ST) Math emphasizes conceptual understanding of math, relying on visual and graphic representation of math concepts and problem-solving strategies while not requiring language skills.
On the interactive website, students help a cute character, Jiji the Penguin, overcome obstacles by providing correct answers to math problems.
