The Study Huddle uses academic competitions as a way to get students started on an unbounded quest of knowledge. For AMC 8, students will learn to persevere and tackle intellectual challenges by developing their foundational understanding in place of rote learning.
The goal of this eight-week course is to give students an introduction to the problem solving strategies required for success on the AMC 8 tests. In a collaborative platform with guidance from the coaches, students share their ideas and challenge their own understanding of several mathematical concepts and learn from the experience.
Beginner classes are meant for students who are just getting started with middle school math competitions. Students will practice roughly 500 problems from previous years, and take away strategies used in these problems. The Study Huddle will also cover several important competition topics in depth. These include:
Upon completion, students are recommended to enroll in the 12-week long Mathcounts Prep Beginner course.
