Math Programs I have Loved. . . AOPS

I have written about The Art of Problem Solving classes and web site in the past, but it is worth sharing about them again.   It is truly a  very unique web site.  AOPS offers online subject classes for  Prealgebra  and up.  Their  classes are very affordable, and they are OK  with a variety of ages taking their classes.  The classes have a  big emphasis on problem solving, and your kids come out knowing math.   You can also participate in up to 3 online-class-sessions before dropping  the class for a refund.  AOPS continues to update and make their programs more user friendly.  I find them extremely responsive to my questions and appreciate their customer service.
They also have a  FREE program you can use called Alcumus.   Art of Problem Solving's Alcumus offers students a customized learning experience, adjusting to student performance to deliver appropriate problems and lessons.  They have a wealth of problems available for your student to solve.

The Art of Problem Solving does a nice job with gifted math students.  What I also like about them is that if your child is serious about math they have a very good reputation among colleges and math minded people.

Hope this helpful.
