About IDEA MATH

The IDEA MATH program has been created to help talented students who want to advance their problem solving skills, both to expand their mathematical horizons, and to maximize their performance in math competitions. We offer the following programs to for students entering 6th to 12th grade

In these programs, students will be able to expand their knowledge and to learn powerful mathematical tools that can be applied to many problems. More importantly, they will develop techniques on how to approach difficult problems, and how to apply their skill effectively to solve the problems.

IDEA MATH brings together students who take pleasure in tackling difficult math problems. Not only can students learn a great deal of math through our classes, but also they will have an opportunity to form friendships with students who, like themselves, enjoy math.

We offer courses for able students of all skill levels. Our wide variety of course offerings include topics found on many middle and high school math contests, from MATHCOUNTS, to AMC 8/10/12, AIME and to USA Math Olympiad.

IDEA MATH is an ideal supplemental program to many advanced online problem solving courses and summer math camps.

Our Philosophy

We believe that the study of mathematics is not linear. Rather, it is a network. Simple, but curious, facts are the nodes of this network. Studying mathematics is like building spirals around these nodes and making connections between the spirals. Mathematics is a field that demands not only flexibility with numbers, symbols, and geometric objects, but also the patience to be exposed to something which is completely new and different, eventually integrating it into an ever-widening but coherent body of knowledge. Curiosity is the real driver of mathematics, science, and technological explorations, however successes can be gained only by the repetitive, sometimes even torturous, processes of investigation, false starts, inspiration, and attention to detail.
