About IMACS Staff

IMACS Live! is designed to give children a competitive edge by teaching them how to think critically using logic and reasoning. With over 25 years of experience, IMACS offers online after-school, weekend, homeschool, and summer classes for gifted and talented 1st-12th grade students in math enrichment, computer programming, logic puzzles, university-level mathematics, and university-level computer science. Highly experienced IMACS Live! instructors teach all courses via Zoom sessions. Secondary school students unable to attend using Zoom may be eligible for online self-paced courses through Elements of Mathematics: Foundations (EMF) or university-level courses through eIMACS.

Math competitions are a popular way to enrich the lives of mathematically talented students. Contests introduce ideas not covered in school, bring together like-minded peers, and celebrate academic achievement. But math competitions have their shortcomings. An education in advanced mathematics that starts with foundational topics, so-called “discrete math,” offers a more complete and inclusive way to develop math talent. This
