The goal of this course is to take away the drudgery of drill sheets and make math more inspiring and engaging. Through colorful, engaging lessons with easy-to-follow explanations, students will learn overarching topics relevant to 4th grade common core standards and cognitive thinking skills.
The Study Huddle has incorporated the Beast Academy online which provides a “fun, rigorous, challenging and complete curriculum for aspiring math beasts”.
At this level, students will be introduced to math contest problems to build on various problem solving strategies. This course covers topics from computational skills and geometry to measurements, algorithmic thinking and problem solving.
This is accomplished through the exercises, puzzles and word problems. During the discussion time students will bring interesting and challenging problems to class and we will solve them collaboratively.
Upon completion of part-1 and part-2 of this course, students can move up to Numbers, Patterns and Problem Solving – Level D.
