CTY’s online mathematics courses span elementary through college-level curriculum and cover a wide range of topics, from algebra and geometry, to chess and cryptography, to AP Calculus. All math courses are offered in either individually paced or session-based formats and are guided by expert instructors.

Your child's instructor will provide guidance and encouragement as the student progresses through the course. 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.

For the individually paced courses, students may start at any time during the year and progress at their own pace within their enrollment period. Review the academic calendar for session dates for NCAA approved mathematics courses. Courses with “AP” in the title have been reviewed by the College Board and are authorized to use its "AP designation."
