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 topics over-arching 5th 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 problem solving strategies like logic, counting and probability. This course covers topics from computational skills, geometry, measurements, algorithmic thinking, statistical skills and problem solving.
This is accomplished through the exercises, puzzles and word problems. During the discussion time students bring interesting and challenging problems to class and we 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 E.
