## Beginner Camp

• mental math techniques

182 - 38

= 182 - 40 + 2

= 142 + 2

= 144

26 x 5

= 26 x 10 / 2

= 260 / 2

= 130

• math problem solving and brain teasers

I transferred 1/2 of the jelly beans from Jar A into Jar B. After that there were 96 jelly beans in Jar A and three times as many in Jar B. How many jelly beans were in Jar A and Jar B at first? (Singapore Math® 3rd grade question)

### Campers MUST be fluent with multiplication table.

• mental math techniques

43 x 98

= 43 x 100 - 43 x 2

= 4300 - 86

= 4300 -100 + 14

= 4214

45% of 18

= (45 x 18)/100

= (45 x 2 x 9)/100

= (90 x 9)/100

= 810/100

= 8.1

• SAT math problems

The ratio of Sue's age to Bob's age is 3 to 7. The ratio of Sue's age to Joe's age is 4 to 9. The ratio of Bob's age to Joe's age is ?
