Chengde Feng’s lecture was greeted with very high attendance and very active participation. Throughout his lecture, Mr. Feng showed the students how to solve a wide variety of geometry problems involving area. These are problems that frequently occur in contests like MATHCOUNTS or AMC. Many shortcuts and techniques were shared to help shave off precious sections during these problem solving tests.
You knew you were at a Math Circle when in the second hour, Mr. Feng announced a “pop quiz” and instead of groans there was honest enthusiasm from the students eager to apply their new knowledge.
Mr. Feng has provided the problems from the lecture. Members of the Metroplex Math Circle e-mail group can download these files from the group site. To join the e-mail group simply click below.
