  1. I've discovered that my practice countdown rounds look much nicer when I chromecast them to the TV. But I need the powerpoint versions (or similar presentation formats) of these documents, not the pdfs I already have. Does anyone know how I can locate these files?
  2. I graduated a few students from my MC team last year, and added 2 girls in 8th grade and 2 boys in 6th grade. The 8th graders were both taking pre-calculus, so I was optimistic about having some strong math students on the team. So I gave the students a placement test to see who would be the top four students to participate in Team Round, and my 2 new 6th graders earned scores well above the 8th graders. I believe the difference is that my 8th grade gals were recently pulled from regular school to homeschool and did not have much problem solving experience. Their learning was accelerat
  3. DS noticed and started using the mathcounts trainer today (http://artofproblemsolving.com/mathcounts_trainer/) and loves it. Not sure if this is new or not. Would like to know if anyone else has used it and how do they like it. Also are there are other similar trainers out there??
  4. Hi: It turns out that there are no public schools in my town that participate in MathCounts, which I think is adding further insult to this already underserved minority population. I have the opportunity to help change that by coaching some students in competition math and hopefully bring some to a MathCounts chapter competition next year. I have little experience working with minority students, and I don't want to turn them off to math. I take it for granted that math is fun, but I am haunted by an experience I had a few years ago in MOEMS where a girl from a respectable private scho
  5. We improved our ranking a tiny bit (from #18 to #16), but no state qualifiers. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised; we haven't sent anyone to state in the 3 years I've been coaching. I can't help feeling sad for the kids, though they probably care less than I do. We've been working so hard this past year, I had three 8th graders on the team, and no one made the top 16. Thanks for letting me vent. Yeah, I know, first world problems. :nopity: Along the same lines, none of the middle schools in my district even participate, there were no African Americans, and supposedly there were
  6. Shannon just got invited to participate in a local Mathcounts team for middle schoolers. She is beyond excited - and I'm so excited that she is! Before this year, and our heavy focus on problem solving, I don't know that she would have been. I'm so proud of her growth in math this year. Anyhow, my question is: how can I help her prep? I'm starting her on Alcumus, and she'll be starting AoPS Intro Algebra in September - she's finishing up Zaccaro Real World Algebra and Jousting Armadillos now, and still needs to cover the pre-geometry and pre-statistics bits of preAlgebra. So I feel lik
  7. Hi: I'm starting to prep for my 3rd year of coaching a mathcounts team. I will have at least a few students who are 8th graders, so I want to do right for them in their last year. In the past my team has scored only between 25 and 30 points in chapter competition putting them near the bottom of the pack, and I'd really like to see them make it at least in the top half of competitors this year. Here is what we do. We meet once a week. As homework I have them do an old Sprint or Target round, and grade it at home. Then when they return, I ask them if they want to go over any pro
  8. Edit: I removed all score information per Julie. Are there any other MC coaches on this forum? We just had our chapter competition last week, my second as a coach of a homeschooling team. This time I received our team tally sheet before we left the competition. Last year it was mailed to me a couple of weeks later, but I wonder if I just didn't know to pick it up before I left. Strangely, our tally sheet did not include correct/incorrect answers for the Sprint Round, only the Target and Team Rounds. Like last year, our keynote was unconscionably boring. Why, why, why c
  9. I know I should put this to the AOPS site, but those kids are so smart, this would be way too easy for them. (It isn't in their archives, and when I've asked easier questions in the past I've been ignored.) Besides, I don't need the answer, I need to figure out a teachable approach to the problem other than guess and check. It's from MathCounts Nationals Team Round 2010: "The mean, median, unique mode and range of a set of eight positive integers are each 10. What is the largest positive integer that could be part of the set?" The answer is 17, and can be achieved with this se
  10. I'm just becoming familiar with MathCounts, and considering coaching a HS group next year. I understand from the manual that a group consists of a team of 4 plus 6 individuals. They recommend that the best students be placed on the team. Trouble is, I don't always know who the best students are. Have any of you coached a MC group? Is there a huge difference in the experiences of students competing as a team versus as individuals? (Are teams more fun?) How did you select who should be on a team and who should be an individual? THanks so much! --Vida
  11. My son (6th grader this fall) is interested in participating in a math competition of some sort. I've looked at websites for both MATHCOUNTS and Math Olympiads--both seem to be active in my state. Can anybody demystify the world of math competition for me? What are the primary differences between MATHCOUNTS and Math Olympiads, and which would you recommend for a first-time participant? Would you recommend that my son compete as an individual or should we try to assemble a team? I'd greatly appreciate your opinions and advice.
  12. Hi! I am interested in forming a math counts group at our homeschool tutorial. I am aware that homeschoolers can now only compete as individuals, but my question is primarily about ages. Our tutorial only goes through grade 6, and I noticed that the program is actually for grades 6-8. My questions are, do kids younger than grade 6 ever participate? And also, could we form a group of 3rd-6th graders that just meets regularly for math enrichment using math counts materials, but not be competitive? Of course, I know we could, but has anyone else ever done that? This is new territory f
  13. MATHCOUNTS Reinstates Homeschool Teams for Upcoming Year August 23, 2010 On Tuesday, August 17, MATHCOUNTS, a prestigious foundation dedicated to the encouragement of math among middle school students, announced a ban on homeschoolers competing as teams. Banning homeschool teams from the annual competition program was a shock to the homeschool community because MATHCOUNTS had allowed homeschoolers to compete as teams for the past 20 years. HSLDA, as well as many homeschoolers, contacted MATHCOUNTS to express our concerns about the new policy. After a phone conversation betw
  14. My 8th grade ds competed in our regional math counts competition today and placed 4th! He is so happy!! If he had placed 3rd, he could have gone to state, but I didn't expect him to place at all!!! He is extremely math smart but he reads so slowly that his reading hampers his scores since speed is a big factor. It was awesome b/c only the top 6 kids are recognized in the individual category and there were schools that didn't have anyone place. When they call out their name, they announce their school. So for him, they called out his name and said homeschooled. It is so wonderf
