Math Master Courses

AlphaStar is thrilled to offer a diverse selection of Master Classes for the 2024-25 academic year, designed to accommodate both online and in-person students. With a proven track record of success, these classes aim to prepare AlphaStar teams and individuals for prestigious math competitions.

Online Master Classes will be accessible to students across the United States and Canada, while in-person classes will be held exclusively in the San Francisco Bay Area (SFBA), providing an engaging learning experience for local students.

Our Master Classes have been instrumental in guiding AlphaStar teams and individual students to achieve top rankings in renowned math competitions. In 2023-24 season our teams won the Berkeley Math Tournament and Caltech Math Meet, as well as second-place finishes at the Harvard MIT Math Tournament and Berkeley Mini Math Tournament. For detailed information on our past accomplishments, please visit the achievements page.

Fee

Master Classes are offered at no cost; however, enrollment is subject to the approval of the course instructor.

Application

We encourage students to apply promptly. Decisions will be made on a rolling basis beginning May 15th and will continue until the class is full. If you don’t receive a decision within a month of applying or by early August, kindly reach out to us via email.
