Reasoning Mind (RM) incorporates aspects of Russian mathematics pedagogy and curricula into its online math program. Our investigation identifies typical attributes of Russian pedagogy discussed in news articles and publications by Russian education experts, then determines how these attributes arise in RM. Analysis of RM's implementation of the characteristics reveals more successful inclusion of curricular attributes than classroom strategies. Thus, we outline classroom techniques that could be assimilated into RM to provide a more Russian learning experience along with students' exposure to Russian-style curricula.
