Abstract

In 1988, Hui Fang Huang “Angie” Su created a unique program utilizing innovative strategies and instructional models designed to get all students, including children with special needs, and teachers of all ability and grade levels excited about mathematics through games, stories, poems, songs, art, puzzles, mental math activities, and competitions for all children (Su, 2002). Students who were exposed to MIND strategies, especially at the elementary level, obtained impressive test results (Annenberg, 1999). Through a generous support from the Ching Chiang-Kuo Foundation, we were able to recruit special education teachers and students in the Southern regions of Taiwan to participate in the training and learning of mathematics using Project MIND model. Come to learn how we venture higher and expanding the possibilities of distance learning through mathematics.
