Pure Math Academy
Pure Math Academy was founded by a small group of mathematicians who share the same love of math. We agree with G. H. Hardy, who said that mathematics has an intrinsic beauty and is an art unto itself. We know math is highly applicable, but this is not our main focus. If you think there is something sublime in puzzles, numbers, logic, geometry and all the rest, you would love to join us.
Class structure. Our classes each run for 5 days, with two separate 1 hour sessions each day. Since math requires reflection and contemplation, we often leave time between sessions so you can think about the ideas and problems in the first session before jumping into the second one (and eat a snack). A short exercise may be assigned during this interval. Longer exercises are assigned between class days.
Ages. Math is for people of all ages. We have no age requirements for our classes. Please be prepared to be in a class with people who are many years older or younger than you.
What we are not. If you are in school, we make no promises that our classes will help your grades. If you like math competitions, we make no promises that our classes will improve your scores. (They might, but that's not our measure of success!) Have fun, stay in school, sign up for contests, but come to Pure Math Academy if you just want to enjoy a little math together.
Our Goal. We hope that after taking a few of our our courses, you will be able to read, explore, and discover interesting mathematics on your own. As we expand every year, we expect to offer more and more courses which will help realize this goal.
Cost. We charge $200 USD per class
