Art of Problem Solving
Is math class too easy for your child? Are you looking for ways to challenge your child more? Check out Art of Problem Solving. They offer books, online classes (including summer courses) and an online community generally for middle or high school students. Course offerings range from Prealgebra thru Calculus including a MathCounts problem-solving series and a year-long training program (WOOT) for the USA Mathematical Olympiad and the International Math Olympiad.

The Art of Problem Solving Online School is now accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.  Their accreditation does not automatically mean that completing an Art of Problem Solving course will allow you to skip the corresponding course in your school.  If you desire to replace a school course with one of these courses, you will need to secure permission to do so from your school.

 

USA Mathematical Talent Search
The USA Mathematical Talent Search (USAMTS) is a free mathematics competition open to all United States middle and high school students. As opposed to most mathematics competitions, the USAMTS allows students a full month or more to work out solutions. Student solutions to the USAMTS problems are graded by mathematicians and comments are returned to the students. The goal is to help all students develop their problem-solving skills, improve their technical writing abilities, and mature mathematically while having fun. For more information, please visit http://www.usamts.org/.

 

Online Schools Library
Save yourself a trip across campus and begin your preliminary research from the comfort of your couch by using the Online Schools Library. The Library has many of the same resources that you’d expect from your school’s traditional library on a range of subjects that students commonly query.
