Half a million workbooks sold
We have reached a milestone. On 25 November 2014, we sold our 500 000th Number Sense workbook!
Without a doubt, we are ecstatic.
The Number Sense Workbook Series was created in 2009 to support our in-class teacher training programs. Our team saw the need for materials that were easy for children to engage with as well as being based on research about how children learn mathematics. And so, the Number Sense Workbook Series was created with the purpose of being used in the schools that we supported.
What came as a surprise to us, was that interest in the workbooks started to grow beyond the schools we worked with. Teachers and parents wanted their children to have the Number Sense workbooks too. In response to this interest we started selling books to schools and parents outside of our project work. From our first sales at the start of 2010 and are humbled by how the interest in the workbook series continues to grow.
Just so you know, the 500 000 workbooks sold do not include the books we supply to schools as part of our ongoing teacher training programs. We estimate is that about 100 000 workbooks have been supplied to schools in this way.
As luck would have it, we had scheduled our year-end function for the 26th of November. So we used the evening to raise our glasses to celebrate!
