I have been a middle school math team coach for 10 years. During that time, I have noticed that several types of questions arise that I could not solve quickly, or even solve at all! I knew there had to be a quicker way to the answers. This is a compilation of all of the shortcuts and important information I give my students each year. It has everything from telling the degrees between the two hands of a clock, to change of base problems, to finding the area of a quadrilateral when given four coordinate points and much much more. There are a total of 28 topics covered, along with a worksheet to give your students that walk them through each type of problem allows them to refer back to the packet to get the answer. An answer key is also given. Enjoy!!
