Founded in 2017, POIS (Patterns Of Integer Space) Research is firmly committed to the idea that mathematics and mathematical learning remain cornerstones to higher learning in the 21st century. Not only is mathematics the only true universal language, but it underpins human knowledge generally, and in particular, advanced computer-related technologies. Providing innovative mathematical learning systems is central to POIS Research's overall goal of advancing students' ability to think abstractly within mathematics.
The patent-pending Tetractys™ Number Puzzle exemplifies POIS Research's mission to add innovative learning systems to current mathematical education. The puzzle has been designed specifically to teach students how to think abstractly in the context of mathematical symbolism. The ability to learn mathematical symbolism and then use this symbolism fluently is prerequisite to learning advanced mathematics.
