Math Beasts Camp 7-8 (Algebra 1 Prep)

Summer Mathematics

The Math Beasts Camp 7-8 summer program is designed for students who have just completed a Prealgebra or equivalent math class, including our Prealgebra Academic Year courses. (Students are not required to take AoPS Academy Academic Year courses prior to enrolling in AoPS Academy summer programs.) We expect most students in Math Beasts Camp 7-8 to be entering 7th or 8th grade, along with some mathematically advanced younger students.

Each day of Math Beasts Camp 7-8 consists of a Problem Solving component and a Mathematical Exploration component. Problem Solving keeps students sharp on particular topics while preparing them for the upcoming school year. We start each class with a quick review of a key topic that students should have encountered in the previous school year. This review is followed by a series of intriguing problems that push student understanding of the topic well beyond the standard classroom level. We finish each Problem Solving discussion with a challenging activity in which students collaborate in teams.

Our Mathematical Explorations are designed to introduce topics that most students don't encounter until much later in their schooling, and to equip students with general mathematical strategies that will be useful throughout their education. Students explore cryptography, starting with Caesar Ciphers, Keyword Ciphers, and other techniques before learning about the foundations of modern cryptography — the building blocks of number theory. Students will end the course with an appreciation for the cryptographic concepts behind internet security.

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 Deadline: Summer enrollment for each class closes one week after the class starts.

"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. "
