Math Level 3
Academic Year Mathematics
Students develop fluency with multiplication and division, including using the distributive property to simplify calculations. They are also introduced to fractions to expand their understanding of numbers. In addition, students explore two-dimensional shapes, estimation, the use of variables to write expressions and equations, and other topics. We regularly incorporate word problems to teach students how to translate between writing and mathematics, and puzzles to teach higher-order strategic thinking.
Homework and exams
Students should expect to spend 1-3 hours on homework every week. Homework will be assigned and completed through Beast Academy Online, where students receive immediate feedback on their work. Students will take four in-class exams throughout the course.
Students will be given a new textbook each quarter. The textbooks for the course are Beast Academy 3A, 3B, 3C, 3D, Guide and Practice.
Textbooks and Beast Academy Online access are included in the tuition and fees of this course.
