Our expert instructors use Beast Academy as the main math curriculum for Honors Math. Developed by Art of Problem Solving, Beast Academy gives elementary students the problem-solving foundation they need to overcome obstacles in school and in life.
Honors Math 3A/3B
Students are introduced to multiplication and division, and how to use the distributive property to simplify calculations. Students also begin to learn how to interpret the mathematics of word problems. Other topics include two-dimensional shapes and their properties.
Honors Math 3C/3D
Students continue to practice interpreting and solving word problems, and develop their higher-order strategic thinking. Students are introduced to fractions and learn multiplication and division, estimation, and the use of variables in writing equations and solutions.
Our instructors hold classes virtually, in a small-size (10-16 students) videoconferencing classroom.
Homework and exams
There are about 1 to 3 hours of homework each week. There are two timed exams in each course — one in Week 9 and one in Week 18. The homework and exam both use Beast Academy Online (subscription is included in the tuition for course duration).
