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 5A/5B
In this course, students master the topics they’ll need to succeed in Prealgebra. Students finish their study of the arithmetic of fractions and negative integers. They are also introduced to the basics of algebra, measuring three-dimensional solids, factors and multiples, statistics and data, sequences, and ratios.
Honors Math 5C/5D
Students round out their learning with mastery in decimals, square roots, and more. They are also introduced to new topics in sequences, percents, ratios and rates. They continue to reinforce critical problem-solving skills by grappling with complex word problems and puzzles in collaboration with their peers and instructors.
Our instructors hold classes virtually, in a small-sized (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).
