For those with natural mathematical ability, stimulation and challenges will drive them to pursue higher levels of mathematical knowledge and skills that will be needed by their future endeavors.

Founder and History

Fun Math Club founder Yul Inn developed an interest in mathematics in elementary school. Through his education and career he has maintained his interest in mathematics.

When his children reached school age, he began thinking about how to share with them his interest in and appreciation of mathematics. Starting with logic and strategy games and puzzles based on mathematics topics he had encountered in his math education, he generated high levels of enthusiasm in his children and their friends. He continued expanding his work with the children to include many topics that they would not see until much later in their education. The exposition of these topics was based on puzzles, games, and artistic activities that engaged, stimulated, challenged, and entertained the children.

Encouraged by the success using this material with his children and their friends, Inn began developing a math enrichment program. He started presenting monthly lessons on a volunteer basis to the 4th grade classes at his children's elementary school. These lessons met with rave reviews from both teachers and students. As a result, he began to offer the program to the 5th and 6th grade classes too. The positive feedback from the higher grades validated the response from the 4th grade classes and prompted Inn to create the Fun Math Club.
