Math Beasts Camp 3 is designed for students who will be ready to take Honors Math 3 in the fall. Many students
take Math Beasts Camp 3 either the summer before the third grade or the summer after, depending on when they
plan to take Honors Math 3.
Our expert instructors use content developed by the Art of Problem Solving curriculum team to teach Math Beasts
Camp 3. As a deep exploration of challenging mathematics, AoPS curriculum prepares students for success at top
universities and competitive careers. No books are required for this class.
Our Shapes, Patterns, and Creativity camp is designed to equip students with general mathematical strategies
that will be useful throughout their education. We introduce topics most students won't encounter until much later
in their schooling. Students develop spatial thinking skills and intuition for the importance of symmetry through
drawing and interacting with interesting shapes like knots, spirals, and plane tilings.
The Logic Training in Puzzles and Games camp focuses on logical thinking, while providing review of key math concepts.
Students participate in a wide range of math-related games and puzzles. They also get a taste of cryptography
as we introduce reasoning and pattern-recognition strategies.
Our instructors hold classes virtually, in a small-sized (10-16 students) videoconferencing classroom.
There is no required homework for Math Beasts Camp 3. However, we've prepared more materials than we can cover
during class and many students continue working on them after class for extra practice.
Drop and refund policies
