Our classes have a class fee of $15 per instruction hour, or $90 per 3-month session.

Our financial aid program

Our need-based financial aid program lets select students take Athemath courses for free, thanks to the generosity of our sponsors.

If you're interested, indicate so in your application, and we'll follow up with more details.

Why not free?

Many student-led math courses online are free. Athemath is not, for three reasons:
  1. We need money to cover costs. In order to attract the best instructors and to cover the costs of Zoom, drawing tablets, web hosting, etc., we need money and your class fee helps us stay afloat.
  2. Paid courses have higher commitment. Massive open online courses (MOOCs) have something like 15 times higher retention among people who pay. We've put a lot of love and care into our courses, and we need your commitment to make it work.
  3. A lot of great, free math resources are already available. What makes Athemath different isn't math instruction, it's the people—and people aren't free.
100% of the money we get goes towards paying instructors and covering costs. As organizers, we don't profit from class fees and donations.
