More than mere calculations

I've used this program after Singapore Primary Math with my two older children, and I love how this series really delves into the "why it works" of mathematics. Children who excel at math need challenges like these that force them to think past equations and calculations. That said, while my second kiddo enjoys the material, my oldest merely tolerates the extra work. I think it's a great fit for a rigorous, classical education, and highly recommend the series and informative website.

LOVE the online teacher

This is a good foundation for pre-algebra, and math theory. This is not a typical "follow the example and do 20 problems" type of book. My 7th grader didn't hate it, but he didn't love it. It involves a lot of thinking and understanding the "whys"...so I really enjoyed it. We both, however, LOVED the free online videos that went with each and every lesson. The teacher is the best. I love all his math t-shirts. I also loved how each and every problem showed every step of the problem in the answers. I will probably use math mammoth pre-algebra for my next kiddo, but I personally enjoyed learning the theory behind pre-algebra which I had never before been taught.

My son has finished Singapore Primary Mathematics and we need to move onto pre-algebra, so I'm hoping this will be a good fit.

My son just finished this course for his 7th grade math. At the end of each section in this book, he watched the correlating videos on the Art of Problem Solving website. The videos are only a fun supplement; full course work is in this book. Humorous, challenging, and makes so much sense for kids who enjoy math and are up for the challenge! Prior to using the Art of Problem solving curriculum, my son would have said he liked math. Now, he would say he LOVES math and he LOVES his math books!

I have a 6th grader that is burning through pre-algebra. I need a program that goes deeper and harder to slow him down and to fill his need to be challenged.

I like the way students are allowed to learn by trying first and are then walked through the solutions step-by-step. I also like the emphasis on teaching why the math works instead of limiting instruction just to how to do it.

I love the instructor and his free videos. The math is more difficult and requires more thinking, but there are less problems to work through. The student learns by figuring out and application of math rules instead of mindless repetition. They learn how to apply the rules to harder problems and break them down using the rules so the hard problems are doable and not overwhelming.

We have a child that is very gifted in mathematics. This seems to be the only curriculum that will be able to engage her and keep her progressing at her speed.

I did extensive research about a prealgebra program. Based on the reviews, and the sample material, I think this might be the best fit for my son.

Encouraged by friends to try this math program, as it would be more challenging than Saxon Math.

AOPS has a reputation for excellence and rigor in math education. Since my child has thrived on Beast Academy materials, I anticipate similar success going forward with AOPS.
