Who We Are

Mindspark Math is owned and operated by Dave Lo ("Mr. Math"), an experienced instructor who has a Bachelor of Science degree (Honours program) from UBC. Dave was the past owner/operator of Ho Math and Chess Burnaby, and now continues his passion for math education with Mindspark Math. He also created and taught the "Chess, Puzzles, and Zome" summer camp at St. George's school.

Dave loves mathematics and describes math with adjectives such as "cool", "fun", "beautiful", and "elegant". He is fond of saying "Don't just show the answers, show the thinking!"

Some of Dave's math heroes include Martin Gardner (recreation mathematics), Douglas Hofstadter (Godel Escher Bach (metamathematics)), Raymond Smullyan (recreation logic), Ian Stewart (math curiosities), Theoni Pappas (Joy of Math), Richard Benjamin (mathemagician), Vi Hart (mathy videos), Marcus du Sautoy (math popularizer), Eugenia Cheng (math, cooking and music), Matt Parker (stand up maths).

We have absolutely no connection with similar named companies from India or controversial software developers. Our Mindspark name comes from and belongs to our parent company, a BC-registered corporation since 2003.
