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 MOEMS Division E competitions. 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 are introduced to the general approach to problem solving and learn how to collaborate with other students to come up with strategies to solve problems. Students will also learn techniques to improve their mental math skills using arithmetic operation strategies.
The following elementary math topics will be discussed in depth and students will complete several problems on these topics.
In addition, students will complete timed practice of about 300 problems from past MOEMS competitions.
