We drew the cover illustration for the 2024 edition of the elementary school mathematics textbook. When you connect the covers of all grade levels, it reveals a math-themed town called "Smart Math Town." It is filled with numerous surprises and discoveries that capture the hearts of children.

The messages embedded in the illustration are "Realize the joy of mathematics and apply it to daily life" and "Desire for learning to be the power that opens up the future."

This cover contains the wish for children to enjoy math.

Mathematics is a skill that is closely related to daily life and is an important subject that serves as the foundation for the future and fosters creativity at the same time.

Therefore, we created a streetscape lined with objects (number buildings, beakers, etc.) that match the learning content of each grade.

I drew children with happy shapes and bright and colorful colors that children can look at with interest.

I hope that I can develop an interest in mathematics from here and expand my own possibilities.

It also expresses school life. School is a place to learn and acquire knowledge, but at the same time it is a place to interact with friends and meet new people.

It would be great if the wonderful experience you had at school gave you the confidence to move forward into the future.
