Other IMACS Curriculum
The primary focus of all IMACS courses is to help your child develop critical thinking, logic and reasoning skills.
The majority of our classes use math and computer science to achieve this goal; however, IMACS offers some specialty courses only available through our Homeschool and Summer Camp Programs.
Not all classes are offered at all locations. Check your local region's schedule for availability.
This class is full of challenging mysteries of pure logic presented through games, puzzles and compelling stories! Students have fun while developing reasoning skills and a love for mathematical thinking. Team logic games, exciting tournaments and independent challenges create a strong sense of accomplishment for all students.
Students are introduced to the fascinating world of electronics and learn about components such as resistors, diodes, LEDs, capacitors, transistors, and integrated circuits. They design and construct fun projects and get to keep the electronics devices they build.
The class teaches students to develop patience, planning and reasoning skills through mental competition. Independent thinking and decision making are important components of the Beginning Chess class.
Beginning Chess is only available through our Homeschool Program.
This class is inspired by the "end game" puzzles found in Beginner Chess. These types of puzzles help students learn to analyze all possibilities as they reason through each problem. Serious Fun takes the "end game" concept to the next level! In addition to using more intellectually exciting chess end game puzzles, the IMACS instructor uses a wide variety of other short games that, much like chess end games, train students to think through each solution systemically and logically. A quick chess review prepares new students for these types of puzzles.
Serious Fun is only available through our Homeschool Program.

Because IMACS students are grouped by ability, not by age, all children must take a free Placement Class before enrolling in any of the programs. During the Placement Class you will have an opportunity to meet with an IMACS instructor who can evaluate your child's current abilities and recommend an appropriate starting point.
