How it all began

In 2003, Claude Laverdure invited Carl Malartre to his class so he could show him an innovative computerized educational platform for math. Carl was very impressed by students’ enthusiasm for the platform.

In fact, since the 80s, Claude had been writing and testing small-scale math software for his students. Carl suggested that Claude put them on the Web, which was really heating up at the time.

In 2004, Jean-Philippe Choinière, Steve Brisebois and Tom Trang joined with Carl to found Scolab, the company behind Netmath. Together, they convinced thousands of teachers and students that interactive exercise books were not only a possibility, but an excellent choice as well.
