Advanced Programme Mathematics (AP Maths) is offered by the IEB as a certified exam and is quality assured by Umalusi. The exam is written by learners in their Grade 12 final exams but the programme has been designed to be taught over three years from grades 10 to 12 in order to build the necessary foundation of knowledge in advance. Over the course of this programme, learners develop independence, critical thinking skills and an extended understanding of Mathematics, which builds a foundation for tertiary education.

Live Online lessons are for learners who want a regular structure to learning AP Maths by attending weekly online live lessons.
Guided Online video lessons are for learners who want to take control of their learning timetable. We will prescribe weekly completion goals, but then our learners can choose when to study based on their timetable.
Advantage Learn has provided schools across South Africa with AP Maths. If your school is looking to outsource Advanced Programme Mathematics, you’re in good hands. We have school packages available and will be happy to engage with you around a bespoke package for your school. Learn more about our school packages.
Our AP Maths programme works on a 2-semester calendar. All lessons, tests and examinations work within a 4-term school calendar and we strive, as far as possible to ensure that our 3-term school learners are accommodated in our lesson and assessment dates. Start dates are grade-dependent which is why you will see a date range below rather than one start date.
|Term||Start Dates||End dates|
|Term 1||20 - 25 January 2021||TBC|
AP maths fees are paid annually and cost the same for all grades 10 to 12. Learners commit to the programme each year and can pay via one of the various payment methods outlined in the table below.
The learning stream you choose differs in price due to the various costs associated with running that specific learning stream. The learning stream you choose to learn in is how your core modules will be taught. For example, if you choose the Live Online learning stream, you will be learning your core modules via Live Online lessons.
Upon successful application onto our AP programme, our finance team will contact you to discuss payments with you.

Like university degrees, the AP Maths curriculum is broken down into core modules and electives. The core modules are Calculus and Algebra, and learners choose one elective from the following three options: Finance and Modelling, Graph Theory and Matrices, or Statistics
|Electives||Grade 10||Grade 11||Grade 12|
|Graph theory and matrices||Guided Online lessons only||Online live lessons only||Available in 2023|
|Finance and modelling||Guided Online lessons only||Online live lessons only||Available in 2023|
The live online lessons are held weekly for each grade and in each lesson, learners will be guided by their AP Maths educator as well as a technical support team member. Before each lesson, learners will be given notes for their upcoming session to enable them to download and print them or have them available on their device before the lesson.
|Online live lessons||Grade 10||Grade 11||Grade 12|
|Time||17:30 - 19:00||17:30 - 19:30||17:30 - 19:30|
Learners who choose to work through the programme via studio-produced video lessons will still be guided by an online coach. They will be given weekly completion goals but can structure their timetable however they wish.
Learners will be assessed termly to determine their understanding of the subject. In terms 1, the learners will be assessed via a multiple-choice test while in terms 2, 3 and 4, learners will be assessed via a written and invigilated examination. The exception to this is in grade 12 where all assessments are written and invigilated in preparation for their final exam in term 4 which is set and certified by the IEB.
Learners can join Advantage Learn for AP Maths from the beginning of 2022 by successful application only.
