Summer Camp Math

For motivated students entering Grades 3-12

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.
"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."
