Welcome to the Dr. Math Tour

Back to About Dr. Math

Dr. Math is a project of the Math Forum. It was begun in the fall of 1994 under the aegis of the Geometry Forum, with the goal of providing prompt, accurate, and educational answers to the math questions of K-12 students (usually ages 5-18 in the United States). In the beginning the doctors were all Swarthmore College students; however, as the program has evolved our staff of Math Doctors has grown to include all sorts of people all over the world.

Here is the original announcement that was sent out in 1994. It describes some of what the Dr. Math program is about.

You might also enjoy reading some of the monthly newsletters sent to Math Doctors since 1998.

That said, enjoy the tour of the Math Hospital.
