“We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.” -T. S. Eliot

We like The Art of Problem Solving math sequence which follows from their Beast Academy for younger kids. They offer math beyond the traditional algebra to calculus path, which we include in our sequence. There are plenty of math curricula out there and most of them can be used just fine with UML.

  • AOPS Calculus
