The goal of this course is to take away the drudgery of drill sheets and make math more inspiring. Through colorful, engaging lessons with easy-to-follow explanations, students will learn topics over-arching 6th grade common core standards and contest problem strategies.
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 and build new problem solving strategies with ratio, rate, percentage and statistics. This course covers topics from computational skills, geometry, measurements, algorithmic thinking, statistics 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.
At the end of this level students can move up to the Understanding Pre-Algebra course. The completion of this level involves fluency that is typically accomplished through two to three 12-week sessions.
