Mathematics

Online Programs offers a variety of mathematics courses with CTY instructors, tailored especially for bright students. For the individually paced courses, students may start at any time during the year and progress at their own pace within their enrollment period.

Your child's instructor will provide guidance and encouragement as the student progresses through the course. Students gain mastery and confidence, learning at a pace that is commensurate with ability. Students and instructors communicate via email, phone, and interactive virtual classrooms. Instructors are trained in the use of technology and are knowledgeable about the best practices in distance education for gifted students.
