Project MIND

Nice article in South Carolina newspaper
Once a child has a command of numbers, they can play around with them and find many ways of solving math problems, according to Su, who emphasizes teaching math concepts rather than the traditional use of teaching rules by rote memory.

“Unfortunately, that’s happening in our schools too often,” Su said. “They are just teaching rules after rules, and children are just learning rules without understanding math.”
