Math Beasts Camp 8-9 (Geometry Prep)

Summer Mathematics

The Math Beasts Camp 8-9 summer program is designed for students who have just completed an Algebra 1 or equivalent math class, including our Algebra 1 Academic Year course. (Students are not required to take AoPS Academy Academic Year courses prior to enrolling in AoPS Academy summer programs.) We expect most students in Math Beasts Camp 8-9 to be entering 8th or 9th grade, along with some mathematically advanced younger students.

Each day of Math Beasts Camp 8-9 consists of a Problem Solving component and a Mathematical Exploration component. Problem Solving keeps students sharp on particular topics while preparing them for the upcoming school year. We start each class with a quick review of a key topic that students should have encountered in the previous school year. This review is followed by a series of intriguing problems that push student understanding of the topic well beyond the standard classroom level. We finish each Problem Solving discussion with a challenging activity in which students collaborate in teams.

Our Mathematical Explorations are designed to introduce topics that most students don't encounter until much later in their schooling, and to equip students with general mathematical strategies that will be useful throughout their education. Students explore the idea of topology and play games with different types of connected surfaces. They also examine various two- and three-dimensional shapes using activities such as tessellations. Finally, they gain some early insight into calculus with an intuitive, geometric approach.

This two-week course meets Monday through Friday for three hours each day.

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 Deadline: Summer enrollment for each class closes one week after the class starts.

"AoPS Academy has a superb curriculum, combined with outstanding teachers who have provided our son a fantastic foundation in mathematics. If only I could have experienced teaching like this when I was young, it would have changed my career choice. The academy is a perfect extension of school in that they challenge students to learn at a much deeper and rigorous level. They also stimulate their interest in mathematics by emphasizing analytical thought over rote memorization of formulas.

The academy truly lays a deep foundation in mathematical thinking for success in all areas involving STEM subjects. It is really exciting to be among teachers and children who love math!

The harder the problem - the more exciting it is to the students and teachers at AoPS Academy."
