Math Beasts Camp 4

Summer Mathematics

This summer program is designed for students who will be in a fourth grade math class in the fall. Students who have just completed our 3rd Grade Mathematics course are ready for Math Beasts Camp 4. (Students are not required to take AoPS Academy Academic Year courses prior to enrolling in AoPS Academy summer programs.)

Each day of Math Beasts Camp 4 consists of a Problem Solving component and a Mathematical Exploration component. Problem Solving keeps students sharp on important topics while preparing them for fourth grade. We start each class with a quick review of a key topic that students should have encountered in third grade. The review is followed by a series of intriguing problems that push student understanding of the topic well beyond the standard fourth-grade level. We finish each Problem Solving discussion with a challenging activity.

Our Mathematical Explorations are designed to introduce topics that most students don't encounter until much later in their schooling, while equipping students with general mathematical strategies that will be useful throughout their education. The Math Beasts Camp 4 Mathematical Exploration inspires mathematical discovery and reasoning through visual representations of numbers. By exploring and manipulating simple dot diagrams, students will explore many rich mathematical ideas in discrete mathematics and number theory, both of which are critical to many areas of computer science and advanced mathematics.

Note: This course does not contain any content from the Math Beasts Camp 3-4 course that we offered in 2020. Students who took Math Beasts Camp 3-4 in 2020 will not repeat material if they take Math Beasts Camp 4 in 2021.

This two-week course meets Monday through Friday for three hours each day. Summer 2020 courses will run online for all sessions.

Space is very limited for our summer programs. Please do not wait until the last minute to enroll. If there are more than two weeks before the course starts, a $200 deposit will be due when enrolling, with the balance due two weeks before the course begins.

Summer Enrollment Deadlines: Summer Language Arts enrollment for each class closes two weeks before the class start date to allow time for delivery of course reading material. Summer Math enrollment for each class closes one day before the class starts.

"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. "
