Art of Problem Solving Academy comes to Atlanta

August 22, 2019 Leave a comment

Art of Problem Solving (AoPS) Academy offers math and language arts classes to motivated students. Its new campus in Johns Creek is now enrolling.

Math classes start at the second-grade level and continue through calculus. Special class sections that prepare kids for math competitions also are available. AoPS math is ideal for students who are bored in their school math class, who want to challenge themselves with more math, or who want to excel in math competition.

Language arts classes begin at the second-grade level and reach a high-school level seminar in academic writing. This reading and writing program is relatively new to AoPS and is designed to help students communicate and collaborate.

AoPS began as a textbook company in 1993 and established its interactive online math classes in 2003. The Johns Creek location is the 10th AoPS center in the United States where students can take classes in person.

Classes for this academic year started this week, but students can join at any time.

Math festival and math enrichment classes at Emory

Emory logoEmory Math Circle is a place for kids who want to take their math to a different level.

Students in grades 6 to 12 use games, puzzles and problems to look more deeply at how math works and discover fundamental advanced math concepts.

Math Circle meets on weekends — about twice a month — on the Emory campus. Groups are taught by Ph.D. students from Emory and Georgia Tech.

The next session of Math Circle will begin in mid-September. Registration ends August 31.

Another math enrichment opportunity at Emory is a Julia Robinson Math Festival on Sept. 7, in the atrium of the Math and Science Center. At this afternoon drop-in event, students can visit multiple stations where they’ll explore math problems and concepts, with guidance from mathematicians. It’s free and open to the whole family.
