Beast Academy BA in the ClassroomClassroom

Beast Academy goes beyond enrichment -- engaging students in unique puzzles and problems to practice mathematical concepts with deep levels of understanding. The Guide books model mathematical thinking from multiple viewpoints, and highlight the importance of student conversation and voice in learning mathematics. The practice problems begin at very accessible levels, then quickly require more complex thinking - going well beyond grade level standards. Our students are motivated to learn challenging mathematics with Beast Academy, and we couldn't be happier with the results.

Beast Academy is a great support for those students in need of a challenge beyond what is given to them in core instruction! I have seen my gifted students flourish this year with their abilities. Not only does Beast Academy meet our students’ academic needs, but it is engaging for the students. My students are eager to get on Beast Academy everyday during independent time. Beast Academy allows our gifted students to receive what they need.

My students have loved having Beast Academy this year. It is very engaging and allows them to work at their pace. They are always asking if it is time for them to get on it. Before we had the online option they also loved the books! Two of the students were trying to figure out how they could buy them for their houses. I was able to even use some of the puzzles from the books for the whole class to beef up the rigor on some easier standards. I have felt from the teacher point it has allowed them to be challenged while working on the same concepts they are learning in the classroom. All three of my students math MAP scores jumped for the spring test. I would love to have it again for next year and also see the other books to use parts for my whole classroom.

My students love BA! The guide books are fun to read (we love discovering hidden jokes throughout the books) and the problems provide a great variety. The problems have a nice range of complexity and my students are excited to do the puzzles that are scattered throughout. My students are excited to come to math class!

I use Beast Academy in several different ways in our school. Whether it's as the main curriculum or as a supplement, students can't get enough of it! They are asking thoughtful questions to each other, they spend time THINKING, and they know that it makes them better mathematicians. Parents are noticing that their kids are excited to talk about math!

We are really loving Beast in 4th grade - they love the videos and the games. They think the guy in the videos is hysterical. When I asked why they liked the videos, one student commented that he really shows how to do the skill - interesting and the more I thought about it - it's so true. They're "short and sweet" and to the point. Also -I love how the concepts are explained. We're doing decimal addition/subtraction and those videos are really helpful. My last class of the day on Friday - bell rings at 3:15 - no one moves. They're all busy in the practice book. Wow.

I work weekly with a group of high achieving third graders and recently started using Beast Academy. The students love the challenging problems and beg to read the Guide Book each week! The curriculum does a wonderful job of captivating and engaging the students, while at the same time stretching them to delve into deep and challenging math problems and activities. I am so excited to have this resource to use with my elementary gifted and talented students.
