Who is this program for?

This program is suitable for students in grades 3 to 12. Younger students are encouraged to apply if they are sufficiently mathematically advanced.

This program is not recommended for students struggling in math. However, we are happy to recommend resources suitable for your child based on his/her assessment.

When and where are  classes  held?

The classes are currently held online to ensure everyone's safety during the pandemic.

When our locations reopen, classes will be held online and at Random Math's Cupertino location: 21580 Stevens Creek Blvd. Suite #106.

The classes are held on weekends and weekdays. Each class is 2 hours long. Students enrolled in competitive courses will need to attend an additional weekly 2-hour practice session.

What is Random Math's philosophy?

Our philosophy is to treat, teach, and learn mathematics as an integrated concept. Not only do we encourage a problem solving approach, but we also foster a culture of co-opetition. To learn more, click here.

How can I register?

You can register here.

Why is an assessment required?

A qualitative assessment helps us understand student’s goals from the program, her/his motivation level, and current proficiency in problem solving and mathematics.

This also helps us identify a suitable class placement for the student and to provide recommendations for future growth and development of the prospective student.

Should my child study for the assessment?

Studying for assessments is not required. However, if your child is rusty in particular subjects, we would encourage brushing up prior to the exam.

While assessments are used to recommend appropriate programs and resources, every student in a Random Math program will be continuously evaluated based on multiple metrics to ensure they are being challenged.

What is the format of the assessment?

The assessment will be a 3-hour, closed-note exam, taken either in-person or online via Zoom. For online assessments, students will be supplied with the exam electronically and asked to keep their video on for the entirety of the assessment.

How do I change the date for which I am registered?

Please contact us at to change the date for which you have registered.

Can I register my child for more than one program?

Yes, students may attend more than one program concurrently. However, when registering, be sure to check that the program schedules do not overlap or conflict.

When and where are  classes for each program held?

The classes are held on weekends and weekdays. Each class is 2 hours long. Students enrolled in competitive track will ned to attend an additional weekly 2 hours practice session

Why is an assessment required for the programs?

A qualitative assessment helps us understand student’s goals from the program, her/his motivation level, and current proficiency in problem solving and mathematics.

This also helps us identify a suitable class placement for the student and to provide recommendations for future growth and development of the prospective student.

Do the specialized math classes have an accelerator program track?

At the moment, we do not hold accelerator sessions for the specialized math classes.

Is an assessment required for my child to join summer camps?

Yes, a qualitative assessment helps us understand student’s goals from the program, her/his motivation level, and current proficiency in problem solving and mathematics.

This also helps us identify a suitable class placement for the student and to provide recommendations for future growth and development of the prospective student.

Will my child have access to lecture recordings if he/she misses a day?

To respect the privacy of our coaches and other students, Random Math does not grant access to lecture recordings.

All students will have access to the coach's daily lecture notes. If your child is absent on any day, he or she should reference the notes to catch up on the material.

Why are there two different sessions for one day?

Each session runs with a different goal in mid. In the morning sessions, our coaches teach students new mathematical concepts. In the afternoons, students practice contest problems to refine their competitive math skills. For a competitive track it is best to enroll in both sessions (full day).

Can I withdraw my child while the camp is in session?

You may withdraw your child and discontinue from Random Math. Standard refund policy and general policy will apply. Please refer to our policies or contact us for details.
