America, the birthplace of great ideas
Math's Mate USA was formed in 2002. The original founders, teachers by trade, discovered the benefits the Math's Mate Program offered to students whilst on an international teaching fellowship in Australia. Interestingly, it was while doing a teaching exchange in the United States that the Author developed the idea of Math's Mate. It goes to show what amazing things can happen when you collaborate globally!
