A Revolution in Maths Education

Our family experience with Mathnasium has been amazing! When the kids leave their sessions, they are able to explain the concepts like telling as story. It’s truly fascinating to see the confidence and joy in their facial expressions!

In the 1990’s, education industry pioneers Peter Markovitz and David Ullendorff recognized that, to truly be successful in school and in life, students need a solid understanding of mathematics. There was a vast disconnect, though, between students’ learning skills and the maths curriculum they were taught in school.

To address that gap, they founded Mathnasium—a maths-only learning centre committed to providing the world’s best instruction. Their goal: teach children how to think, with the skills to succeed in maths and the confidence to achieve their academic potential.

After an exhaustive search, they found the perfect person to help them achieve their vision: Larry Martinek, a beloved educator, teacher trainer, and curriculum consultant. Larry and Mathnasium’s expert team spent years refining the most powerful teaching methods and materials into the comprehensive, industry-leading Mathnasium Method™.

The trio opened the first Mathnasium Learning Centre in Los Angeles in late 2002 and began franchising in 2003. The extraordinary dedication of Mathnasium’s local centre owners and staff, combined with Mathnasium’s child-centred approach, proved wildly successful. Mathnasium has become an award-winning, world-class maths education company, and global demand for our service has soared.

Since our inception, Mathnasium has been trusted by over a million parents in neighbourhood learning centres on five continents.

Working closely with their international teams, Mathnasium has successfully localised the programme, adapting to the needs of differing curricula, and creating a programme with international relevance that gives children around the globe the power to achieve excellence in maths.

An Educator Who Goes Above and Beyond

His son changed the way he thought about teaching maths. That grew into an entire curriculum.

Children don’t hate maths. What they hate is being confused, intimidated, and embarrassed by maths. With understanding comes passion, and with passion comes growth – a treasure is unlocked.
