HeyMath- proven best practices from great teachers

HeyMath! was founded in May 2000 by Nirmala Sankaran and Harsh Rajan on a worldview that there is no perfect education system. We're based in Chennai, India, and are privately funded. Contact our founders.

We've made it our mission to create a flat world video curriculum by diligently seeking out proven best practices from great teachers and discerning parents around the world.

HeyMath! lessons are developed with advice from the University of Cambridge and endorsed by the Singapore Teachers' Union.
