As students and schools all across the country are signing up for MathCON and preparing for the online competition, we thought it would be fun to give you another place to get your math on: YouTube!
Starting this week, we will be posting a video every Friday on our YouTube channel. The new video series is called ‘Math with Ayhan,’ and each video will work through a math problem including Arithmetic Sequences, Least Common Multiple, Counting Principles and Combinations, Rational Numbers and many more topics with our host, the brainchild of MathCON: Ayhan Caputlu.
Each week we will have one video for middle school and one for high school. The best part? We need you to make it work: check back every week for the next question, try your hand at solving it in the comments and then wait for the solution the following week! Think of this series as a sort of math sandbox: play around with solutions, interact with other math enthusiasts and sharpen your math skills in preparation for the first round of the competition.
MathCON is a nonprofit national mathematics organization recognized for its annual student mathematics competition. This mathematics competition is for students in grades 5-12 and has had more than 200,000 student participants since 2008.
