More Than Just Arithmetic
Math is often taught as a collection of processes and formulas that can be used for specific calculations. At Beast Academy, we help students establish a deep understanding of the concepts behind the calculations, preparing them to go well beyond arithmetic.

The Joy of Problem Solving
The delight that comes from a single "Aha!" moment is infectious. Unraveling Beast Academy problems and puzzles gives a sense of satisfaction that motivates enthusiastic learners.

Flexibility and Perseverance
Students who get every problem right on their first try are not learning as much as they could be. The challenging problems and puzzles found in Beast Academy encourage flexibility and perseverance, helping students gain the mindset needed to tackle tough problems in any discipline.
Select
Mastery Through Exploration
Beast Academy presents students with a few basic mathematical concepts, then asks them to apply these concepts in novel ways. By making insights and connections on their own, students develop a rich understanding that is not quickly forgotten.

A Record of Success

Beast Academy is published by the Art of Problem Solving® team, who have developed resources for outstanding students since 1993.

The AoPS Textbooks and Online School have been an integral part of the math education of tens of thousands of middle and high school students as they prepare for prestigious colleges and internationally-competitive careers.

For over a decade, most of the winners of MATHCOUNTS and the USA Mathematical Olympiad have used AoPS materials as a core component of their training.

Art of Problem Solving
 in the Classroom

Beast Academy can be used as a supplementary curriculum or as the core mathematics curriculum in your classroom.

In addition to many public, private, and home schools that use Beast Academy to inspire young students, Beast Academy is used in all of our in‑person AoPS Academy learning centers.

We currently have AoPS Academies in six cities:

We expect to open additional learning centers in 2019.

About Us
...really good math textbooks that introduce their subjects in a clear and easy-to-follow fashion, carefully linking each concept to the last; and the exercises are lively, fun, and built around stories that dovetail smoothly into puzzles, games, and other ways of putting the knowledge into practice.
Cory Doctorow
I couldn't be happier with my child's reaction to this incredible educational resource. He loves the books and reads them even at bedtime. The challenging puzzles and problems in the Practice books are perfect for him. Finally, there is a math program with genuinely intriguing and creative problem sets! I can see the wheels turning and his love of math coming alive again.
Kristina Ivey
My son loves math, but Beast Academy is the only math book that he's ever begged to read!
Kate Snow
This program has taught [my daughter] to think differently about math and understand that there are many ways to solve a problem. It has also taught her to persevere in solving difficult problems. I’ve also seen her ability to think logically and conceptually improve. It’s not just math – it’s how to think and discover and answer.
Lexi Henegar
One of the things I like about these books is the way students are guided to think more creatively about how to approach a novel problem. The monsters work together and point out clever ways to approach problem solving.
Jennie
Thank you for this WONDERFUL curriculum! I have a 4th grade daughter who has really struggled with Math. We have tried several curricula, which all were a source of angst and tears. Enter BA 3A...my daughter is sitting at the table as I write this message, emitting all sorts of giggles and squeals as she tries to figure out the toothpick puzzles at the end of Chapter 1. She actually asks to do Math now!
Christina Culotta Celebi
I have two kids who absolutely LOVE Beast Academy. And I have to say, I also love Beast Academy. They re-read it over & over, mostly because they love the characters. (I think Grogg is their favorite.)
Mike Williamson
I'm really impressed with the care and detail, not only of the math thinking, but the visuals, the humor, and the story.
Carol Lloyd
... the response that I have seen has been really tremendous. What seems to stand out… is that these books don’t dumb the work down nor do they talk down to the child.
Brian Cronin
...every time the students see me, they get very excited and ask if it's a "Beast Academy Day." They love the characters and enjoy the humor in the Guide book and they persevere to complete as much of the Practice book material as they can.
Lauren Croix
...my son cannot let go of your book. He is reading/working on it day and night... I just want to say that you guys did a great job, and my best recommendation to my colleagues and anyone who is thinking about math books for their children.
