Do you have a gifted child who needs a worthy challenge in math or computer science?
For over 20 years the Institute for Mathematics and Computer Science (IMACS) has been giving gifted students an outlet for reaching their highest potential in math, computer science and logical reasoning.
Through after-school, weekend, summer, homeschool and distance-learning programs, IMACS students develop logical reasoning and creative problem solving skills far beyond their most advanced peers. For the rest of their lives, whether in school, at work or at play, IMACS graduates simply think better.
Local IMACS classes, from Math Enrichment to Computer Programming to University-Level Courses, are interactive and fun! Each student is challenged by ability level, not by age, using games, logic puzzles, virtual robotics, and other engaging activities.
For independent learners who do not have local access to the IMACS program, select components of our highly acclaimed curriculum are available online through our eIMACS and Elements of Mathematics: Foundations programs.
eIMACS (for ages 14-18, approximately)
Web site: www.eimacs.com
eIMACS offers students the opportunity to study university-level courses in Mathematical Logic and Computer Science, including a College Board-approved course that leads to the AP® Computer Science exam. Students who successfully complete eIMACS courses develop superior abstract reasoning abilities and computational thinking skills that make all future classes requiring critical thought significantly easier.
Elements of Mathematics: Foundations (for ages 10-14, approximately)
Web site: www.elementsofmathematics.com
Elements of Mathematics: Foundations (EMF) is a self-study program that provides a deep and intuitive understanding of foundational concepts in mathematics, including many topics neglected in the standards-based curriculum. EMF will enable bright students to complete all of middle and high school mathematics with the exception of calculus before leaving middle school.
IMACS, eIMACS and EMF are ideal for gifted children who desperately need a challenge worthy of their ability. Our programs provide a unique and unfair advantage for your gifted child. Get the ultimate academic advantage with IMACS!
