5th Grade Mathematics - AoPS Academy Gaithersburg Campus

5th Grade Mathematics

Academic Year Mathematics

This course covers topics that students need to master before taking the challenging AoPS Prealgebra course. Students complete their study of the arithmetic of fractions, decimals, and negative integers. They are also introduced to topics in geometry, number theory, statistics, and beginning algebra through lessons on three-dimensional solids, factors and multiples, statistics and data, sequences, and ratios. As with our earlier elementary school classes, we include thought-provoking word problems and puzzles to teach students mathematical modeling and deductive reasoning.

After completing Grade 5 Mathematics, students are ready to start building a solid foundation for algebra in Prealgebra.

Textbooks: Beast Academy 5A, 5B, 5C, 5D, Guide and Practice.

Textbooks and BA Online access are included in the tuition and fees of this course.

Sample Problems

Below are examples of some of the types of problems that students will encounter in our 5th Grade Mathematics course.
"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. "
