In January of 1997, Mr. Math started his own math consultant company entitled, “Project Motivational Math, Inc”. This company is designed to help encourage, excite and motivate boys and girls to excel and take a better interest in mathematics.
The origins of PMM date back to 1983, when the founder and president, Mr. Willie L. Walker began his mathematics program in Miami-Dade County, Florida. The program and mathematics competitions proved to be so successful that he was awarded the Miami-Dade County Mathematics Teacher of the Year in 1990. A total of over 15,000 students have attended his annual mathematics competitions. Every year they continue to have mental math competitions, which highly motivates the students to get involved mathematically. These competitions are so successful until it seems like the students are going to a football or basketball tournament, rather than a mental math championship.
