  • I've developed a lot more confidence in math since taking AoPS Introduction to Geometry. In the process of doing harder problems than I ever knew I could, I've also begun to see geometry as an art. I'm enjoying math more and more!

  • AoPS courses are a wonderful balance of challenge and guidance, constantly stretching students and inviting them to wrestle with problems at their own pace until they reach epiphanies. Bravo! I wish AoPS had been around when I was in high school.

  • My instructor was great. She was always willing to offer advice and knew just how many hints to give to keep problems doable but still satisfying.

  • The combination of videos, textbooks, online problems and book problems has been fantastic for our boys. I love that they can do this at their own pace, and how motivated they feel now that they're in charge of their own learning.
