CHAMPAIGN -- It's hard to believe, but students at one school look forward to doing math. Robeson now has the ST Math Program.

The idea is almost opposite of the way students traditionally learn math. It teaches math concepts first, then the formulas are introduced.

The program cost $50,000. A $15,000 grant helped cover the cost. The community and PTA picked up the rest.
