# What’s the Highest Sustainable Daily XP on Math Academy?

by Justin Skycak on

Around 50-60 XP/day, that is, 50-60 minutes of serious practice per day. Just like the high-end amount of daily exercise you'd expect from people who keep a consistent exercise routine at the gym.

A number of Math Academy students on X/Twitter have been posting screenshots of incredible XP feats like 200, 300, 400, even 500+ XP in a single day!

(For reference, we calibrate 1 XP to be equivalent to to be equivalent to 1 minute of fully-focused work for an average serious but imperfect student. So 500 XP is about… 8 hours of math!!!)

But can anyone keep that rate up over the long term?

One student asked me this question today and I ran a quick query to find out.

Here’s a screenshot of the top month-total XP records in Math Academy history.

The very top record is 5728 XP in a month, equivalent to about 200 XP/day for a month.

But the dropoff is super quick: the #10 spot is equivalent to about 125 XP/day for a month, and then the #20 spot is about 100 XP/day for a month.

So, just eyeballing this data, I would say that the maximum sustainable XP rate is around 50-60 XP/day.

This sounds about right if you think about it like physical exercise – when I think about people who keep a consistent exercise routine at the gym, 1 hour daily is the high-end number that comes to my mind.

Now, to be clear, you don’t need to do 60 XP/day to make great progress and experience hyper-acceleration.

The students in our original school program learn Prealgebra, Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Precalculus, AP Calculus BC in just 3 years at a pace of 40-50 XP each school day (which averages out to about 30-35 XP/day in general).

So even something like 30 XP/day is going to have you making seriously fast mathematical progress.

But for those competitive spirits who want to do more and try to break the monthly record… now you know where the bar is ;)

Remember, though: consistency is key! You’re going to make way more progress over the long term if you stick to a pace that you can actually maintain, than if you push yourself too much and burn out.
