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 third-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.

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 one week before the class start date to allow time for pick up of course reading material. Summer Math enrollment for each class closes one day before the class starts.

"General coaching classes at many academic training centers stress repetition of the concept until a student grasps it thoroughly. At AoPS Academy, they go far beyond repetition. Their highly qualified instructors do a great job at teaching fundamental concepts to students at much greater depth, and challenge them to walk that extra mile by presenting them with more complex problems to solve. It provides a great learning experience in a friendly, fun, yet competitive and challenging environment. They provide their students with a combination of excellent instructional curriculum along with amazing online tools. AoPS Academy also encourages students to take part in various competitions. Overall they do an incredible job imparting a deep knowledge of both math and language arts to all of their students, and AoPS Academy sets them on a path towards their career goals. We are happy to be part of AoPS Academy family!"
