Teen Entrepreneur Grants Teachers’ Wish Lists

Math-a-Mania(tm) game makes learning math fun for children and adults

TULSA, OK /Send2Press Newswire/ — Raynece Leader-Thompson was only thirteen when she created the Math-a-Mania(tm) game that makes learning math fun for children and adults. As she accepted invitations to demonstrate the game for school districts across the nation, she saw first-hand the lack of supplies in many of the classrooms. As sales of “Math-a-Mania(tm)” increased, Raynece asked her mother Johnece, president of the games distributor Math Workz, LLC (, to help find a way they could fill this need. The “Teachers’ Wish List” is a result of this desire.

A percentage of each quarter’s sales is set aside to grant teacher’s wishes for their classrooms. By completing a simple form on the Math Workz website,, teachers across the U.S. can enter. An independent panel chooses each quarter’s winner and the supplies are shipped to the school.

Johnece says, “We look forward to reading every entry. Some are funny, some heartbreaking, but every one is worthy. As the company grows, the awards will grow and well be able to give back even more.”

Now sixteen, Raynece attends public school and travels with her mom to demonstrate the game for organizations, schools and parents. She says, “I love to see the kids’ eyes light up when, after playing Math-a-Mania, they suddenly understand that math problem they’ve been struggling with.”

“Math-a-mania helps children relax and have fun without realizing that they are learning,” she adds. There are four levels to this game so it allows you to adjust the game to the level of the players. “Playing this game is a perfect way to master basic addition, subtraction and multiplication. You can also incorporate division as well,” says Raynece.

The instructions are simple and in both English and Spanish. Raynece cautions players that, “Math-a-Mania can become addictive!”

The “Teachers’ Wish List” is open to all U.S. teachers — not just customers of Math-a-Mania(tm). Teachers interested in Math-a-Mania(tm) demos should contact their Service Centers or School Districts and request a visit from this charming teen.
