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.

"AoPS Academy has provided a wonderful opportunity for my children to advance and hone their knowledge and skills in mathematics.  My children have attended for a few years now, and they love it. They always look forward to attending class. I truly admire the hard work and dedication of all of the staff towards making AoPS Academy a center of excellence for math and language arts.  Both of my sons, one in high school and one in middle school, are ahead of their schoolmates in their math classes.  Not only that, they have both developed a love for this subject aided by the exposure they have received at AoPS Academy. They enjoy the interactive method of teaching, and look forward to their classes. The courses offered at AoPS Academy keep them engaged and challenged. The focus on high achieving students, along with their selective admissions standards, helps to maintain high standards. I have many business associates and friends around the United States, and have told them about AoPS Academy. They are so envious that we have such a wonderful opportunity for such rigorous instruction with the Art of Problem Solving world class curriculum. I look forward to the day when there will be an AoPS Academy in every major city in the country."
