NumbersAlive! is pleased to announce that its founder, Rebecca Klemm, Ph.D., received her first US utility patent on August 2nd.

The newly issued patent protects Dr. Klemm’s process of forming puzzles by decomposing shapes into smaller components with a mathematical correlation to the original. The patent additionally protects providing a base with cutouts to receive the original shapes that may be assembled from decomposed components. Finally, the patent protects the use of cards with images correlated mathematically to their shape.

Dr. Klemm’s work creating her patented puzzles gave rise to the Rebecca Klemm Conjecture. As she divided complex polygons into smaller polygons of the same number of sides, she realized that the process was infinite. The conjecture proposes that any polygon can be divided into an infinite number of polygons with the same number of sides. Dr. Klemm informally announced her conjecture at the 2016 Math Association of America Conference. A formal competition to prove the Rebecca Klemm Conjecture is forthcoming.

Rebecca Klemm’s new patent and its protections, despite their implications for the field of mathematics, pertain primarily to the educational puzzles that she produces at NumbersAlive!. Those puzzles are unique in asking learners to relate numbers to shapes and objects in the world around them. By reframing math in concrete terms, Dr. Klemm offers the many students across the world struggling to engage with math a new avenue to understanding.

While the educational puzzles develop numeracy through blended learning, they also help learners develop advanced spatial reasoning. Indeed, puzzles produced under this new patent can challenge all levels of learner, from the youngest students to collegiate competitors. The benefits of Rebecca Klemm’s unique and powerful learning tools extend to all.

Rebecca Klemm has already exhibited versions of puzzles protected by her new patent across the country and around the world.
