The Reel Math Challenge is a team competition, and the goal is to make the best teaching video that explains a solution to one of the 270 problems in the MATHCOUNTS School Handbook. Each team consists of 4 student Team Members and 1 Team Advisor (an adult).
Interested? This could be a great Bard Math Circle activity, but time is running out. Send a friendly email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to volunteer to be a Team Advisor, and we'll try to connect you with a team.
Now, more about excellence in math education through problem-solving. Each month we offer an engaging sheet of math problems. Math competitions such as
- Purple Comet (purplecomet.org)
- MOEMS (moems.org)
- MATHCOUNTS (www.mathcounts.org)
- Math Meets (www.mathmeets.com)
- AMC8 (amc.maa.org/amc8/)
all publish similar problems. While the Bard Math Circle is not about competition, we value problem-solving as an entry way into learning mathematics. The Reel Math Challenge is one of the fun ways to solving problems in a math circle environment.
