Mathtian is a mathematics content publisher specializing in self-directed learning which develops creative thinking skills, using manipulatives, games, presentations, play, and projects. Leading the nation in creative thinking skills content with the publication of programs such as Soma and C-math, the Mathtian research center consists of experts and researchers with experience working for educational institutions and publishers. Under the leadership of Heonho Han, Mathtian continues to provide high-quality creative thinking mathematics content.
Having been recognized for excellence, in 2009 Mathtian content was selected for use as a textbook by Los Angeles’s Third Street Elementary Summer School. With this pioneering step in introducing Korean educational content to the US, in April, 2010 Mathtian became the first Korean publisher to be invited to the NCTM Forum in the US, where it demonstrated the excellence of Korean educational content.
In particular Mathtian Bee, aimed at students from 7 years old to 4th grade, combines material from the school curriculum with creative thinking skills. This program has been selected for use at over 120 academies throughout the nation, including Highest’s elementary division. Recently Mathtian received much attention from parents with the release of FACTO, developed as a preparation for gifted education, an area which has recently been receiving much interest.
Mathtian is now expanding with the release of Numino, the English-language version of its content, and plans both to expand domestically and to assist in increasing the quality of every area of T-IME Education’s operations.
