||Institute for Mathematics and Computer Science
||eIMACS, the distance learning division of the Institute for Mathematics & Computer Science (IMACS), is dedicated to delivering the highest quality interactive math and computer science classes for gifted and talented secondary school students. University-level, online courses include Advanced Mathematical Logic, University Computer Science, AP Computer Science, and Test Prep for the AP Computer Science and AP Calculus exams. eIMACS is based in Plantation, Florida, and serves students from across the US and around the world, including homeschoolers, students without access to AP Computer Science, and students who want to study advanced math and computer science at their own pace. For high school level courses for talented middle school-aged children, consider Elements of Mathematics: Foundations (EMF).

The eIMACS online courses are excellent for highly gifted math students. eIMACS did a great job of teaching my daughter mathematical logic. I can't stress enough how valuable it is for our brightest youngsters to learn a breadth of mathematics utterly beyond the usual high-school curriculum, instead of rushing through an honors high-school math curriculum and the Calculus as fast as possible. I was thoroughly impressed by the quality of the materials, and by the speed and quality of the personal feedback in the math courses.

My son has taken many online programming and math courses, but eIMACS was among the very best in terms of teaching a fundamental understanding of the concepts rather than the simple mechanics. We plan to use eIMACS in the future and to recommend it strongly to families with a strong interest in really understanding math, logic and programming.

"Our son was an IMACS student from 8th through 10th grade. Because of his radical acceleration in school and in math in particular, he needed early access to more than what was available at middle and high school. eIMACS allowed him to take advanced classes without the prejudice of age or grade-level expectations. eIMACS provided our son with rigorous classes in programming and logic in a flexible, self-paced manner in the comfort of our home. The Web-based interface and self-contained compilers were bug free, allowing him to concentrate on learning. The online instructors gave prompt and encouraging feedback. Our son is now a high school senior and applying to top math and science universities across the country. Thank you, IMACS, for giving him a firm foundation!" - Steve Tkach, Parent
