About Magma

Magma is a startup that has quickly grown to become the leading platform for data-driven math education. By leveraging handwritten solutions in a digital format, Magma allows teachers to place emphasis on creativity in math, while gaining key insights into student progression. This creates a more engaging, inclusive and pedagogical math class for all students. Math remains the largest challenge for schools, where one in five students in year 9 are low performers. Math is one of the core pillars on which careers are built, and we believe that K-12 math represents one of the largest opportunities at improving educational outcomes and career prospects for children and young adults.  Originally founded in Stockholm, Magma is now growing rapidly across Europe and the US, with offices in New York and London. We are an ambitious team on a meaningful mission of improving math education for millions of children.
