Math Beasts Camp 6 (Prealgebra Prep)
Choose the right level
Math Beasts Camp 6 is designed for students who will be ready for an Honors Math 6 or Contest Math 6 course in the fall.
Our expert instructors use content developed by the Art of Problem Solving curriculum team to teach Math Beasts Camp 6. 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.
Math Beasts Camp 6 includes sessions in Mathematical Exploration and Problem Solving.
Our Mathematical Exploration sessions are 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. In this course, students will explore the rich field of graph theory, building the basics through mathematical games and laying the groundwork for applying graph theory to novel problems.
The Problem Solving sessions focus on logical thinking, while providing review of key math concepts. Students participate in a wide range of math-related games and puzzles that are meant to push student understanding of familiar topics well beyond the standard grade level.
Our instructors hold classes virtually, in a small-sized (10-16 students) videoconferencing classroom.
There is no required homework for Math Beasts Camp 6 (Prealgebra Prep). However, we've prepared more materials than we can cover during class and many students continue working on them after class for extra practice.
