Dr. Matthew Peterson, Co-Founder, of the MIND Research Institute spent time with the Core to discuss how we can re-purpose math education into an interactive experience for children. Dr. Peterson and MIND’s research has uncovered a terrible truth that 70% of U.S. students fail math by middle school.
MIND’s work removes language barriers and elevates math proficiency through interactive gaming and visual feedback. Dr. Peterson’s personal story and experience with math turn an often marginalized topic into a rich conversation piece for parents, teachers and students alike. The Core strongly recommends Dr. Peterson’s TED Talk below as a point of pause, reflection and inspiration!
