    Curriculum

    All of our courses follow a curriculum designed by AoPS. Since 1993, AoPS has trained the next generation of resilient, confident problem solvers. We believe in tough but accessible challenges and student ownership of learning.

    Our Honors Math courses 2–5 use Beast Academy, a rigorous math curriculum designed by AoPS. Beast Academy is set up as a complete math program, but it can also be used as a supplementary curriculum in a public, private, or homeschool setting.

    Starting at Level 6, we offer two parallel curricular tracks. While our Honors Math courses continue to challenge students to develop their critical thinking skills, our Contest Math courses add problem-solving sessions to prepare students for math competitions like MATHCOUNTS, MAA AMC, and more.

    The AoPS curriculum team has designed a wide variety of special activities and explorations for our summer courses. These classes dive into topics that we believe are essential for students' success in the following academic year and introduce students to mathematical concepts not typically covered in a school curriculum.

    Sequence

    A higher-level course is built upon the knowledge and skills of a lower-level course. We recommend first honing in on your student’s level by their age, and then have them take a placement test.
