Today, the U.S. produces only half the amount of STEM graduates per capita compared to countries like China.
China produces 29% STEM graduates, the U.S. produces 14%.
This means a child born and educated in China has a 29% chance to become a STEM grad, compared to a 14% chance for a child in the U.S.
Decades of scientific proof shows that U.S. is teaching inferior number words.
In China, young children learn 9 words to count from 1-100 and that's all you need. English language students learn those same 9 number words, plus an extra 17 irregular number words like eleven, twelve and twenty.
Here is the science:
Science proves young children are confused by irregular English language number words, so this is the only scientifically-proven way to fix the problems in U.S. math education and thereby increase the number of U.S. STEM graduates.
Ten One Math created a system of regular English number words
that can be used by parents and educators who feel compassion toward children and the struggle with early numeracy.
Ten One Math number words now and use them with young children. Thanks for being a part of the solution!
