Since now more than 40 years we feel committed to the education and training of children, adolescents and adults. In the future, we therefore want to put our emphasis on mathematical learning materials and to expand this even further.

With the additional development and production of mathematical learning games we want to cover and pick up the known trend of additional and independent learning at home or in small groups within the mathematics classrooms.
