  Karim Ani is the Founder of Mathalicious. A former middle school math teacher, he thought there should be a better way to teach and learn math. Mathalicious is transforming the way math is taught by providing middle and high school teachers with the most relevant, engaging, and effective math lessons anywhere. Mathalicious designs lessons around real-world topics that students care about, from sports to technology to health & wellness. This contextual approach helps students make sense of the math, and develop both conceptual understanding and procedural fluency. Karim taught eighth grade math in Virginia and New York City before becoming a middle school math coach. Karim has degrees from Stanford University & UVA, and thinks that Socrates will always be a better teacher than C3P0.
