Math Beasts Camp 3

Summer Mathematics

This summer program is designed for students who will be in a third grade math class in the fall. Students who have just completed our 2nd Grade Mathematics course are ready for Math Beasts Camp 3. (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 3 consists of a Problem Solving component and a Mathematical Exploration component. The Problem Solving component focuses on logical thinking while providing review of key math concepts. Students participate in a variety of math-related games and engage with a wide range of mathematical puzzles. Students also encounter a small taste of cryptography as we introduce reasoning and pattern-recognition strategies.

Our Mathematical Explorations are designed to introduce topics that most students don't encounter until much later in their schooling, and to equip students with general mathematical strategies that will be useful throughout their education. The Math Beasts 3 Mathematical Exploration inspires geometric mathematical discovery. Students develop spatial thinking skills and intuition for the importance of symmetry through drawing and interacting with interesting shapes like knots, spirals, and plane tilings.

Note: This course contains some content from the Math Beasts Camp 3-4 course that we offered in 2020. Students who took Math Beasts Camp 3-4 in 2020 will repeat some material if they take Math Beasts Camp 3 in 2021.

This course meets five days a week, Monday through Friday. Some sections are 2 weeks and meet for 3 hours each day. Other sections are 4 weeks and meet for 1.5 hours each day. Both cover the same course material.

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.

Summer Enrollment Deadlines: Summer Language Arts enrollment for each class closes one week before the class start date to allow time for pick up of course reading material. Summer Math enrollment for each class closes one day before the class starts.

"My children have been students of AoPS Academy for several years now. The staff is very good at identifying and encouraging high achieving students to attain their fullest potential. The instructors engage kids to solve tough math problems, and push them to think logically and come up with unique solutions, instead of following a memorized formula. I have witnessed many classes where students are given the opportunity to suggest multiple ways of approaching the same problem. This has really helped my children develop independent learning skills and a stronger foundation in mathematics. The staff truly care for each and every student’s growth. Every child gets an abundance of individual attention. Programs such as the math competition classes, MATHCOUNTS Trainer Contest, and Short Story Contest really challenge the kids to reach up to the next level. The language arts classes like Debate & Public Speaking and College Essay Writing provide a much higher quality of education for their students. Thank you so much for being such a valuable resource for my children. "
