Math Beasts Camp 2

Summer Mathematics

This summer program is designed for students who will be in a second grade math class in the fall. Students who have completed any grade 1 math course, or our Math Level 1 course, are ready for Math Beasts Camp 2. (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 2 consists of a Problem Solving component and a Mathematical Exploration component. The Problem Solving component helps students to master many topics that will prepare them for the next school year. We focus on number sense, addition, subtraction, shapes, place value, comparing, and patterns. Within these topics, we work on problem solving techniques that go beyond those which most students encounter in a standard grade 1 classroom.


The Mathematical Exploration component provides students with an active, hands-on, and activity-based learning experience. It focuses on one or more mathematical games that are designed to be directly related to the core math topics of the day. After playing each game, students get to learn about some of the mathematics behind the game. Students then learn how to turn their mathematical knowledge into strategies, and have another opportunity to play and apply what they have learned.

Our family regularly talks about AoPS. We try to think about how our life would be different without you all. What if my daughter hadn't learned to love math? What if she never experienced being pushed to her limits? Overcoming failure? She wouldn't be who she is. And she is AWESOME! A very proud mom here. We are so fortunate that we found AoPS Academy. I credit AoPS for much of her confidence.
