Live online teaching

Now looks like this

By relatable, brilliant people

Anchored by expertise

Hard
+ Fun
Thrill

Are you in any math class from Pre-Algebra through Geometry, and find it easy? Welcome to the best online math classes for launching your potential into the stratosphere!

Our live math courses don't just accelerate. We go deep. And inspire. We cover math from competitions like MATHCOUNTS, AMC 8, and AMC 10, as tools to teach you to invent.

Then we add personality: real, interesting people. Our new tech blows up interactivity (and looks nice). It's the fun of Instagram Live and Twitch, applied to serious education, for the first time.

In-Video Chat

You're not alone anymore. We've solved the problem of Zoom class being so boring that everyone secretly watches YouTube instead. The breakthrough was to put the chat on-screen, as a centerpiece to focus discussion and interaction. How? By moderating it. A feature that is not available in Zoom.

Improv Comedy

In each class, two live-streamers teach 40 students. Ideas flow in so many more ways, and elevate the excitement level of the class. This teaching style is our unique combination of performance techniques from improv comedy, combined with broad math expertise.

Powered by Po-Shen Loh

Live interaction? Or professional math insight and expertise, with crystal clear, polished, explanations? Who says you can't have both? Our live-streamers multiply the Prof. Loh effect by interspersing his short pre-recorded clips. With our technology, when they smoothly ask, “Prof. Loh, what do you think?”, it's just like he's in the room too.

Rolling Enrollment

We've cracked the code. Online courses are now more lively than in person. This lets us create class cohorts without geographical limitations. You don't have to squeeze your schedule around an 8pm class, or wait for the next season to enroll in a camp. Just share your times of availability, and our system will automatically search for schedules that match. We'll contact you as soon as we create a new meeting time that suits you.

Actual Course Footage

Words can't describe how engaging and immersive this new experience is. See our techniques at work in this raw (unedited) video capture from an hour-long Zoom class, taught by multiple former MATHCOUNTS state champions. Audio and video from students in the class has been blocked for privacy. The people in the video are the brilliant high school math students who are teaching. The on-screen chat messages show how actively their students were participating in the discussion.

Structure

Modules

The backbone of middle school math competitions. Efficiently covers important topics that are not part of standard school curriculum. Modules are available for a wide range of levels, from middle and elementary school students familiar with Pre-Algebra, to high school students who need to learn Combinatorics and Number Theory for high school math contests.

Classes per Module

Each 60–90 minutes long. Structured around big questions that you get to think about, and discuss your ideas. Our streamers improvisationally lead students to discover how their ideas could contribute to a solution, before Prof. Loh's segment provides comprehensive coverage.

Carefully Designed Problems

Each module contains over 150 specially crafted problems, each of which teaches new concepts. Many are quite challenging. You'll discover abilities you never knew you had. Includes homeworks and practice tests.

Curriculum

Our LIVE courses are priced at just under $20/hour. They follow the same curriculum as our self-paced courses (which have been taken by thousands of students).

Icon for Introduction
Introduction (Module 0)

An efficient tour through all areas of beyond-curricular math (aligned with MATHCOUNTS and AMC 8). Teaches topics in Algebra, Geometry, Combinatorics, Number Theory, and Probability. Designed to inspire students to love challenging math.

syllabus
Icon for Algebra Basics
Algebra Basics (Module 1)

A deep dive into the algebraic concepts which can be understood with just a Pre-Algebra background (prerequisite knowledge: decimals, fractions, and percents). These concepts form the majority of the early problems on MATHCOUNTS and AMC 8.

Icon for Geometry
Geometry (Module 2)

Rapidly teaches geometrical concepts through custom-designed problems that are understandable to students who have not yet taken a proof-based high school geometry course. Covers geometry which appears in MATHCOUNTS, AMC 8, and AMC 10.

Icon for Combinatorics
Combinatorics (Module 3)

A systematic introduction to one of the most interesting math subjects which is not taught in the standard school curriculum, but which often appears in hard problems on math contests. Covers concepts in MATHCOUNTS, AMC 8, AMC 10, AMC 12, and AIME.

Icon for Algebra Tools
Algebra Tools (Module 4)

Since algebraic problems appear twice as frequently as other subjects on MATHCOUNTS and AMC 8, this course makes a second pass at algebra, covering more advanced topics that Algebra Basics (Module 1) did not have time for.

Icon for Number Theory
Number Theory (Module 5)

Our most challenging course. A systematic introduction to abstract concepts across number theory, illustrated through custom-designed problems that make difficult-to-grasp ideas concrete. Covers concepts in MATHCOUNTS, AMC 8, AMC 10, AMC 12, and AIME.

Placement

Answer a few questions, and we will recommend a track.

Have you taken any systematic math contest classes outside of school which are beyond Algebra?
