Position Description:    

Art of Problem Solving (AoPS) is on a mission to discover, inspire, and train the great problem solvers of the next generation. Since 2003, we have trained hundreds of thousands of the country’s top students, including nearly all the members of the US International Math Olympiad team, through our online school, in-person academies, textbooks, and online learning systems. While our primary focus has been math for most of our history, through the years we have expanded our unique problem solving curriculum into subjects, such as language arts, science, and computer science.

At AoPS, we believe that students learn best by working through challenging problems that present opportunities to develop problem-solving and critical reasoning skills through productive struggle and creative thinking. Our goal is for students to build a deep conceptual understanding of mathematics by grappling with why mathematics works.

We seek math curriculum developers to shape innovative and engaging mathematical learning opportunities for motivated K-12 students. Since we provide resources in several different formats and offer courses via a variety of delivery methods, AoPS curriculum developers have a wide range of avenues to share their love and understanding of mathematics with eager learners.

Examples of curriculum development opportunities include: *Expanding our Beast Academy math curriculum for elementary school students to provide a full-classroom experience to be delivered in schools across the country. *Creating courses, lessons, activities, games, and puzzles for delivery in our twelve in-person AoPS Academy learning centers across the US. *Continuing the evolution of our Beast Academy Online learning system through designing and refining online lessons and activities. *Helping advance the state of the art in online course delivery by designing courses and delivery tools in our AoPS Online School or our AoPS Academy Virtual Campus. *Teaching your newly-developed or heavily-revised math classes at one of our AoPS Academy locations (including Virtual Campus) to remain connected to our students and our classrooms. *Developing or refining specialty courses for very advanced math students, such as training programs for math competitions.

You might be a good fit for this position if... *You’ve built a passion for math through teaching or doing mathematics, and are eager to guide motivated students on mathematical explorations. *You have strong mathematical foundations and enjoy solving puzzles like this. You know a few creative ways to compute 1+3+5+7+...+199. *You’re excited about helping students grapple with and enrich their understanding of mathematical ideas through creating cognitively demanding math tasks. *Your classroom experience as a teacher or student has given you strong intuition and conviction about how we might best inspire and train the great problem-solvers of the next generation. *You look forward to the challenge of writing and designing for teachers, designing curricular materials that will empower them to provide engaging and rigorous classroom experience. *In addition to being a math geek, you’re a bit of a word geek, reading voraciously and fussing over your own writing.
