Summer Math and Science

Courses during the summer for high-performing math and science students entering grades 3–12. Enroll directly through our course schedule.

Math Beasts Camp 3-4

Math Beasts Camp 3-4 is designed for students entering a third or fourth grade math class in the fall. The course keeps students' math skills sharp over the summer while introducing new avenues of mathematical discovery, with a focus on honing students' spatial thinking abilities through explorations of symmetry, knots, plane tilings, and tessellations.

Math Beasts Camp 5

Math Beasts Camp 5 is designed for students entering a fifth grade math class in the fall. The course reviews key concepts from fourth grade, and provides some early practice with ideas they'll master in the upcoming year. Students also study strategic mathematical games to develop essential problem-solving skills such as pattern recognition, working backwards, and seeking invariance.

Math Beasts Camp 6 (Prealgebra Prep)

Math Beasts Camp 6 is designed for students entering a sixth grade math class or Prealgebra class in the fall. The course reviews key concepts from fifth grade, provides some early practice with ideas they'll master in the upcoming year, and offers an early exploration of graph theory, a rich field of advanced math with many important real-world applications.

Math Beasts Camp 7-9 (Algebra and Geometry Prep)

The Math Beasts Camp 7-9 summer program is designed for students who have just completed a Prealgebra or Algebra 1 equivalent math class. The course reviews key algebraic and geometric concepts, provides some early practice with ideas they'll master in the upcoming year, and offers an exploration of cryptography, with an emphasis on important areas of number theory that make internet security possible.

Middle School Math Contests: Number Theory and Geometry

Students explore middle and early high school contests such as MATHCOUNTS and the American Mathematics Competitions 8 and 10 (AMC 8 and 10). Students are introduced to important topics in number theory and geometry, and work individually or collaboratively to solve challenging problems related to these topics. Students also participate in mock individual and team competitions during the camp.

Middle School Math Contests: Algebra and Counting

Students explore middle and early high school contests such as MATHCOUNTS and the American Mathematics Competitions 8 and 10 (AMC 8 and 10). Students are introduced to important topics in algebra, counting, and probability, and work individually or collaboratively to solve challenging problems related to these topics. Students also participate in mock individual and team competitions during the camp.

High School Math Contests

Students study strategies needed for success on the American Mathematics Competitions 10 and 12 (AMC 10/12) and other major high school contests. In addition to learning core concepts, students will participate in practice competitions during the camp, which provides the test-taking experience that will prepare them for key events in the upcoming school year.

Summer Language Arts

Courses during the summer for high-performing language arts students entering grades 3–10. Enroll directly through our course schedule.
"One of the best decisions I ever made was to send my son to AoPS Academy for improving his math skills. The results are simply amazing! In addition to dramatically improving his math skills, my son also enjoys the social environment that the academy offers. Personally, I am very impressed with the quality of the entire staff (teaching and non-teaching alike). I would not hesitate to recommend AoPS Academy to any parent who is serious about developing their child's academic potential in a safe and stimulating environment."
