Math Beasts Camp 2

Summer Mathematics

This summer program is designed for students who will be in a second grade math class in the fall. Students who have completed any grade 1 math course, or our Math Level 1 course, are ready for Math Beasts Camp 2. (Students are not required to take AoPS Academy Academic Year courses prior to enrolling in AoPS Academy summer programs.)

Each day of Math Beasts Camp 2 consists of a Problem Solving component and a Mathematical Exploration component. The Problem Solving component helps students to master many topics that will prepare them for the next school year. We focus on number sense, addition, subtraction, shapes, place value, comparing, and patterns. Within these topics, we work on problem solving techniques that go beyond those which most students encounter in a standard grade 1 classroom.

The Mathematical Exploration component provides students with an active, hands-on, and activity-based learning experience. It focuses on one or more mathematical games that are designed to be directly related to the core math topics of the day. After playing each game, students get to learn about some of the mathematics behind the game. Students then learn how to turn their mathematical knowledge into strategies, and have another opportunity to play and apply what they have learned.

This two-week course meets Monday through Friday for three hours each day.

Space is very limited for our summer programs. Please do not wait until the last minute to enroll. If there are more than two weeks before the course starts, a $200 deposit will be due when enrolling, with the balance due two weeks before the course begins.

Our homeschooled son is extremely gifted in math and science.  He really feels at home at AoPS Academy.  Through coaching and personal attention at AoPS, he achieved a 5 in AP Calculus at 11 years old and a 4 in AP Statistics at 12.  He also achieved an 800 on SAT II math at 12 years old.  Our son feels very comfortable in the atmosphere of AoPS, where being gifted in math is not looked down on, but treated with respect.  He has truly found his peers at AoPS Academy. 

AoPS Academy allows my son to be himself, learn that there are other kids well advanced in math, and gives him the confidence to know that it is OK to be great in math, and that other people will respect and value his ability.
