Honors Math 3A/3B - AoPS Academy Virtual Campus

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

Honors Math 3A/3B

Year-Round 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.

"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. "
