The IMACS Math Enrichment Program is unlike any class your child has ever experienced. Not only do IMACS students have fun in the classroom, but they also develop critical reasoning skills and a genuine understanding of the logical reasoning processes required to solve advanced math problems.
For the rest of their lives, whether in school, at work or at play, IMACS graduates simply think better.
What is Math Enrichment?
The IMACS Math Enrichment program is perfect for above average to gifted elementary school and middle school students. Whether your child excels at math and is ready for greater challenges, has lost their excitement for math, or seems indifferent to math, IMACS can help them to develop from where they are to their full potential. Our program introduces students to advanced mathematical concepts in an interesting and engaging way. Our students learn sophisticated math skills, prepare for middle and high school, and most importantly have fun!
What Activities Does Math Enrichment Involve?
The IMACS Math Enrichment program teaches students using fun and interactive stories, puzzles, and games. Students progress through five levels of meticulously designed lessons, learning advanced concepts often overlooked in traditional math classes such as sets, relations, and functions. Our students are grouped by ability, not age, and so your child will be free to reach their full potential.
How Will Math Enrichment Help My Child?
The IMACS Math Enrichment program prepares your child for success in middle school, high school, college, and the workplace. Our program teaches advanced mathematical thinking that makes excelling in middle and high school classes much easier, but more importantly we teach the critical thinking and problem solving skills that will enrich every aspect of their lives. Our graduates have a competitive advantage that will help them think, learn, grow, and achieve.

What Will My Child Learn?
While traditional teaching generally focuses on the memorization and application of algorithms, the IMACS Math Enrichment Program helps students develop advanced problem-solving skills in an interactive environment full of fun games, stories and puzzles.
Visualization techniques allow IMACS students to understand advanced concepts about numbers, sets, relations and functions that are usually brushed over in traditional — and even gifted — math classes in school.
While the five levels of Math Enrichment vary in sophistication, they all have the following in common:
- meticulously-designed games, stories and puzzles;
- emphasis on logical thinking, abstract reasoning, mental arithmetic and an understanding of mathematical tools; and
- use of visual and physical devices to teach advanced concepts in creative ways.
As you will see from the free Placement Class, IMACS does not tutor students in the rote skills they study in school. IMACS students learn genuine reasoning skills, allowing them to achieve success in their academic and professional careers in a way that most of their peers will not.
Is the IMACS Program Right For My Child?
Classes in the IMACS Math Enrichment Program are perfect for students who desperately need a challenge worthy of their ability as well as for those who have untapped academic skills just waiting to surface.
The IMACS Math Enrichment Program can help a wide variety of students because students are grouped by ability, not by age. This means your child will never be held back from reaching his or her potential.
To ensure that your child is given the proper level of challenge, attend a free one-hour Placement Class with your child. The Placement Class allows you and your child to see what an IMACS class is all about. The most common statement we hear from parents after the Placement Class: “I wish I had this when I was growing up.”
