Honors Math 5A/5B - AoPS Academy Virtual Campus

Spring 2021 classes are open for enrollment. Reserve your spot before the classes fill!

Honors Math 5A/5B

Year-Round Mathematics

Honors Math 5A/5B and Honors Math 5C/5D together cover a full year's curriculum for advanced fifth or sixth graders.

In this course, students master the topics they’ll need to succeed in Prealgebra. Students finish their study of the arithmetic of fractions, decimals, and negative integers. They are also introduced to the basics of algebra, measuring three-dimensional solids, factors and multiples, statistics and data, sequences, and ratios.

Like in previous AoPS Academy courses, students strengthen their mathematical modeling and deductive reasoning skills by working through our challenging word problems and puzzles.

Student Placement

To determine if your child is ready for this course, have them take our Placement Test. If your child is not ready for this course, please consider Honors Math 4A/4B or Honors Math 4C/4D.

If you believe your student is beyond Honors Math 5A/5B, please consider Honors Math 5C/5D. Please note that sixth graders without prior experience with the Beast Academy curriculum are often best-served by starting with Honors Math 5A/5B or Honors Math 5C/5D rather than moving on to Prealgebra in the AoPS Online School.

Format

All classes are held in a small-size (10-16 students) videoconferencing classroom run by an expert instructor.

Curriculum

Beast Academy is an elementary school math curriculum developed by Art of Problem Solving to give students the problem-solving foundation they'll need to succeed in any intellectual endeavor. This course covers the Beast Academy 5A and 5B Guide and Practice books. This Alignment Chart shows the curriculum standards covered in the book chapters.

Homework and Exams

There is about 1 to 3 hours of homework each week. There are two timed exams - one in Week 9 and one in Week 18. The homework and exam use Beast Academy Online, whose subscription is included in the tuition for the duration of the course.

"AoPS Academy is such a valuable resource for my two daughters and our family.  We kept hitting brick walls with our former school and the Director of AoPS Academy was the first person to honestly explain to us options and provide us with information so that we could make informed decisions about their education.  For that we are forever grateful and trust him beyond measure. AoPS Academy is far more than just an after-school academic training center. They have gone above and beyond to help our children's talents develop into their full potential.  Art of Problem Solving Academy will continue to be a key part of our long-term education plan.  The results have been amazing! They are truly my children’s first school, even though they are an after-school program!"
