Math Level 1

Academic Year Mathematics

Students develop their number sense and begin to learn about place value. They are introduced to addition and subtraction and are encouraged to approach numerical problems in clever ways. Additionally, they manipulate shapes, compare numbers, and examine ways to measure physical objects. We use puzzles and games to build skills and establish student understanding of mathematical concepts and problem solving.

Homework and exams

Students should expect to spend 1-3 hours on homework every week. Homework will be assigned and completed through Beast Academy Online, where students receive immediate feedback on their work. Students will take four in-class exams throughout the course.


Students will be given a new textbook each quarter. The textbooks for the course are Beast Academy 1A, 1B, 1C, and 1D.

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

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.
