  • Mathnasium of Richmond
    More than three decades ago, educator Larry Martinek set out on a mission to develop a curriculum that would radically change the traditional approach to teaching math. Noting a "disconnect between students' basic skills training and the curriculum they [must] master in the years to come," Larry created an original teaching method designed to turn students into miniature mathematicians capable of thinking critically to solve problems. His approach, which he describes as the cultivation of number sense, strives to sharpen students? math instincts, rather than drill them with repetitive, memory-based exercises or force them to blackmail accountants to crunch the numbers. Soon after students began using Larry's method, their test scores began to rise. In the spring of 2002, Larry's dream came true. Peter Markovitz and David Ullendorff, leaders in the education industry, made Larry and his curriculum the driving force of Mathnasium. Larry introduced his curriculum as the Mathnasium Method. Today, Mathnasium centers can be found throughout the world. Informed by Larry's visionary innovations, the program's tutors give personalized coaching that focuses on bolstering critical thinking through written materials and mental math, forsaking many of the teaching tools found in a traditional classroom. In addition, the tutors also focus on boosting students' enthusiasm for the subject, helping them overcome a lack of confidence in the classroom or their innate fear of prime numbers.

  • Kidz Zoom
    Kidz Zoom stands as a testament to the dreams of Karen Snead, a mother who worked passionately to erect the kid-friendly inflatable play place. Her daughter, Rashida Traywick, now takes charge of the open space, which houses inflated playscapes on which children cavort and decide just how many bags of candy belong in a 401(k). The yielding, bouncy structures beckon all manner of jumping and sliding, and a massive, inflatable throne can backdrop whimsical photos. A party room, where young ones might enjoy cake and pizza, can grant a reprieve between bouts of bouncing. Meanwhile, a toddler area is framed by a welcoming inflatable bunny and themed with inflatable snails and large mushroom caps.
