– Many mathematical talents never reach their full potential. We want to change this through our PeakMath solution, says David Brohede, one of the founders of Motivic Labs.
– With today’s global challenges, we need to provide better conditions for future generations, and deep mathematical knowledge is a prerequisite for many other disciplines. Therefore, we combine profound knowledge about math with world-class digital pedagogy.
Motivic Labs wants to create an entirely new type of mathematics education. With the help of the pedagogical framework MAD (Machines, Analogies, Dialectics) and the whole mathematics visualized in a landscape, students can learn mathematics faster and deeper than before.
Andreas Holmström and Torstein Vik, both mathematicians, have created the framework. Andreas has a doctorate in mathematics from Cambridge and has researched at several major European universities. The team also includes Andrea Langva, an MBA and teacher with solid experience in Norwegian business, and David Brohede, a psychologist with expertise in digital educational design. David has his office in Mjärdevi Center, while the other team members are stationed in Ålesund, Norway.
Motivic Labs recently won a regional Norwegian innovation competition, Næringsteft. The competition is sponsored by Sparebanken Møre and aims to strengthen the innovative power in western Norway. Out of 65 competitors, Motivic Labs went home with the victory of 1 million Norwegian kroner.
– Capital opens doors for us, says David Brohede. We already have several interesting dialogues underway and look forward with excitement to developing the first version of PeakMath. The gain also means valuable opportunities in the form of networks, mentors, and resources via a local incubator.
