# IMACS

IMACS runs After School programs in math (using Formal Logic) and Computer Science (using Scheme and Logo!) - but no location near me. (Even for Elementary School!)

- they have online classes for Middle School and High School
- cost: $1k each

also creator of the MEGSSS math course for Middle School TAG programs - actually this is what *became* IMACS when they decided teach math through Computer Programming

- NumberTwoSon did this program.

2017 - History: *Burt Kaufman, my father, and two other co-founders of IMACS, Edward Martin and Iain Ferguson, taught from 1983-1993 in a Broward County Public Schools gifted math program for grades 6-12 known as Project MEGSSS... Our AP Computer Science A course is used by Florida Virtual School... We serve over 4,500 students across the US and in more than 15 countries around the world*

*over the next year, IMACS will complete the final courses of Elements of Mathematics: Foundations (EMF), which is our online math program designed for talented students in grades 6-8. EMF covers all of pre-algebra through precalculus, plus several university-level topics. For the third year running, Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) selected EMF as full-time curriculum for its top middle school math students. The amazing thing about the Broward program is that the students are not being taught by a classroom teacher. EMF is a self-study program; the kids who just finished 7th grade taught themselves college-level abstract algebra using EMF, and they're only about 12 years old!*

- 2018: NumberThree is using this for her 6th grade math. The teacher mostly walks around helping people having specific problems. 80% of kids/families hate it - I'm not sure that's the teacher's fault, or the program's.
