5th Grade Mathematics - AoPS Academy Santa Clara/Cupertino Campus

5th Grade Mathematics

Academic Year Mathematics

This course covers topics that students need to master before taking the challenging AoPS Prealgebra course. Students complete their study of the arithmetic of fractions, decimals, and negative integers. They are also introduced to topics in geometry, number theory, statistics, and beginning algebra through lessons on three-dimensional solids, factors and multiples, statistics and data, sequences, and ratios. As with our earlier elementary school classes, we include thought-provoking word problems and puzzles to teach students mathematical modeling and deductive reasoning.

After completing Grade 5 Mathematics, students are ready to start building a solid foundation for algebra in Prealgebra.

Textbooks: Beast Academy 5A, 5B, 5C, 5D, Guide and Practice.

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

Sample Problems

Below are examples of some of the types of problems that students will encounter in our 5th Grade Mathematics course.
"AoPS Academy has a superb curriculum, combined with outstanding teachers who have provided our son a fantastic foundation in mathematics. If only I could have experienced teaching like this when I was young, it would have changed my career choice. The academy is a perfect extension of school in that they challenge students to learn at a much deeper and rigorous level. They also stimulate their interest in mathematics by emphasizing analytical thought over rote memorization of formulas.

The academy truly lays a deep foundation in mathematical thinking for success in all areas involving STEM subjects. It is really exciting to be among teachers and children who love math!

The harder the problem - the more exciting it is to the students and teachers at AoPS Academy."
