Cisco Grant To Assist Math Education Development by Dave Nagel

The MIND Research Institute, a non-profit education research and publishing organization, said this week that it's received a $500,000 cash grant from the Cisco Foundation...
The MIND Research Institute is the developer of the ST Math series of technology-based educational software, which until recently targeted only elementary-level math. In October the company expanded that line to include an e-learning tool for middle- and high-school students called ST Math: Algebra Readiness Supplemental, which focuses on students in grades 6 and higher in need of math intervention. The ST Math software uses game-based instruction to lead students through math concepts aligned with individual state standards and to develop problem-solving skills.
