The Study Huddle uses academic competitions as a way to get students started on an unbounded quest of knowledge. Students will learn to persevere and tackle intellectual challenges by developing their foundational understanding in place of rote learning.
The goal of this twelve-week course is to give students an introduction to the problem solving strategies required to succeed in the Mathcounts competitions at the school level and chapter level. 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.
Students will practice roughly 360 problems from the harder sections of the previous/current years Mathcounts handbooks and take away strategies used in these problems.
In addition to this, students will complete questions from the previous Mathcounts competitions (chapter, State and National level) and continue to cover important competition topics in depth. These include:
