Honors Math 2A/2B

Academic Year Mathematics

Honors Math 2A/2B and Honors Math 2C/2D together cover a full year's curriculum for advanced second or third graders.

In this course, students start to expand their understanding of how the number system works — how we name and represent numbers — and place value, how where a digit is placed in a number matters. Students practice adding and subtracting with multi-digit numbers quickly and accurately. Students will also explore the properties of different types of numbers—for example, the different properties between evens and odds.

Throughout the course, we emphasize problem-solving strategies to help students build foundational skills that they will use throughout their math education. Most lessons include challenging word problems and engaging puzzles that guide students toward a deep understanding of the material.

Student Placement

To determine if your child is ready for this course, have them take our Placement Test. If you believe your student is beyond Honors Math 2A/2B, please consider Honors Math 2C/2D and Honors Math 3A/3B.

Students who complete this course are ready for Honors Math 2C/2D.

Format

All classes are held in a small-size (10-14 students) videoconferencing classroom run by an expert instructor.

"My children have been students of AoPS Academy for several years now. The staff is very good at identifying and encouraging high achieving students to attain their fullest potential. The instructors engage kids to solve tough math problems, and push them to think logically and come up with unique solutions, instead of following a memorized formula. I have witnessed many classes where students are given the opportunity to suggest multiple ways of approaching the same problem. This has really helped my children develop independent learning skills and a stronger foundation in mathematics. The staff truly care for each and every student’s growth. Every child gets an abundance of individual attention. Programs such as the math competition classes, MATHCOUNTS Trainer Contest, and Short Story Contest really challenge the kids to reach up to the next level. The language arts classes like Debate & Public Speaking and College Essay Writing provide a much higher quality of education for their students. Thank you so much for being such a valuable resource for my children. "
