Hey i'm a programmer and mathematician.
Is there a market in teaching high school math with interactive and graphical web applications?
How would one go about monetizing this?

    I did some research and found there is a huge growing market for E-learning.
    Anyone have experience with it?

      Probably the largest place for e-learning is www.udemy.com

      There are lots of people earning good money creating courses and putting them there, so if you haven't already looked at Udemy would be worth taking a look.

    As long as you got value you got something to sell! You may want to think about starting your own YouTube Channel, it's a good way to start building an audience through tutorial videos. Eventually you can build a website and use your YouTube channel to drive traffic. You can potentially earn through YouTube advertising and charge for memberships on your website. This Japanese language channel is doing a similar thing:
    Best of luck!

    You could make a lot of money from what you do just with Youtube videos, especially if you're a good teacher. There are a number of people I follow on Youtube that make $100,000+ USD from it. The S.T.E.M. (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) are really big right now. You could look into creating an app or something and selling it.

    There are many e-learning websites available today for high-school programs, both free and paid ones. Those are mostly video courses. However, I haven't yet encountered any interactive web-based application in the high-school level math area. This might be a good opportunity for you, so you can give it a try.

    There is a huge demand for interactive learning.

    Keep in mind that tutoring is a huge global market.

    The downside that I can see with your niche is that a lot of your hottest markets are outside the United States.

    We're talking about after-school or self-paced learning systems catering to Koreans, Taiwanese, and Chinese.

    There's a huge market in self-paced learning.

    The downside is in the specific implementation of the service for this hot niche: it's very easy to replicate.

    What you're basically offering is a self-service system, and anybody can do that.

    The truly hot market is in tutoring, which is very hard to replicate because the relationship is what really sells.

    It is the interaction between the student and the tutor that gives value to the experience.

    You're selling an experience, you're not just selling interaction with prerecorded materials.

    To make matters worse, your market model is also very easy to steal.

    Just as adult entertainment suffered a tremendous decline because of canned adult content being pirated, the same could apply to your situation.

    People only need to steal your materials and host it somewhere else.

    So if I were you, I would focus on live tutoring.

    Lots of good advice, thanks.I realized that this is a great opportunity for me, since i am able to create interactive web apps and implement 3D graphics with webGL.
    We're talking about after-school or self-paced learning systems catering to Koreans, Taiwanese, and Chinese.
    How young do they pick up English? Im wondering at what is the minimum math skills i should expect my visitors to have. I've heard they learn math pretty fast.

    As for tutoring.. I could perhaps create chat rooms and hire live tutors.
