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

Summer Mathematics

The Math Beasts Camp 7-9 summer program is designed for students who have just completed a Prealgebra or Algebra 1 equivalent math class. We expect most students in Math Beasts Camp 7-9 to be in 7th, 8th, or 9th grade, along with some mathematically advanced younger students.

Each day of Math Beasts Camp 7-9 consists of a Problem Solving component and a Mathematical Exploration component. Problem Solving keeps students sharp on particular topics while preparing them for the upcoming school year. We start each class with a quick review of a key topic that students should have encountered in the previous school year. This review is followed by a series of intriguing problems that push student understanding of the topic well beyond the standard classroom level. We finish each Problem Solving discussion with a challenging activity in which students collaborate in teams.

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 Camp 7-9 Mathematical Exploration is an introduction to cryptography. We start with Caesar Ciphers, Keyword Ciphers, and other techniques before introducing the building blocks of number theory that are the foundations of modern cryptography. Students will end the course with an appreciation for the cryptographic concepts that make security on the internet possible.

We offer this course in two formats: a two-week course that meets Monday through Friday for 3 hours each day, and a four-week course that meets Monday through Friday for 90 minutes each day. The content is identical in all offerings of the course.

Space is very limited for our summer programs. Please do not wait until the last minute to enroll.

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

"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!"
