**IDEA MATH Curriculum**

IDEA MATH provides extensive curriculum. Our courses are intended for able students desiring to expand their mathematics knowledge beyond regular classroom settings. We emphasize study skills (such as taking notes, oral and written presentations, and listening, observing, and organization etc.). We believe in studying math via problem solving as a medium to develop students' learning interests, problem solving, and critical thinking abilities. Our courses cover a board range of topics with more depth than most contests require. While our programs are not intended to be boot camps for contest preparations, many of our students participate in contests and do well in them. The following table provides some simplified connections between our courses and certain math contests.
