Honors Math 3A/3B

Academic Year Mathematics

Honors Math 3A/3B and Honors Math 3C/3D together cover a full year's curriculum for advanced third or fourth graders.

In this course, students are introduced to multiplication and division, and how to use the distributive property to simplify calculations. Other topics include two-dimensional shapes, their properties, and more. Students learn to interpret the mathematics of word problems, while solving puzzles that encourage higher-order strategic thinking.

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 your child is not ready for this course, please consider Honors Math 2A/2B or Honors Math 2C/2D.

If you believe your student is beyond Honors Math 3A/3B, please consider Honors Math 3C/3D and Honors Math 4A/4B. Please note that fourth graders without prior experience with the Beast Academy curriculum are often best-served by starting with Honors Math 3A/3B or Honors Math 3C/3D rather than with Honors Math 4A/4B.

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.

"AoPS Academy has provided a wonderful opportunity for my children to advance and hone their knowledge and skills in mathematics.  My children have attended for a few years now, and they love it. They always look forward to attending class. I truly admire the hard work and dedication of all of the staff towards making AoPS Academy a center of excellence for math and language arts.  Both of my sons, one in high school and one in middle school, are ahead of their schoolmates in their math classes.  Not only that, they have both developed a love for this subject aided by the exposure they have received at AoPS Academy. They enjoy the interactive method of teaching, and look forward to their classes. The courses offered at AoPS Academy keep them engaged and challenged. The focus on high achieving students, along with their selective admissions standards, helps to maintain high standards. I have many business associates and friends around the United States, and have told them about AoPS Academy. They are so envious that we have such a wonderful opportunity for such rigorous instruction with the Art of Problem Solving world class curriculum. I look forward to the day when there will be an AoPS Academy in every major city in the country."
