Coach Wharton has been coaching Mathcounts at the Wheeler School in Providence RI for the past 19 years. He has coached the Rhode Island team at the National Competition 9 times and has worked with dozens of National Finalists. He recently moved to Hanover with his family and he's excited to coach the RMS Mathcounts team. When he's not teaching or coaching math, or making calculator videos, he can usually be found playing football, soccer, hockey, or skiing with his three boys. He also loves playing frisbee with his golden retriever, Buddy.
Fun Fact #1: Coach Wharton has run 15 marathons including 7 Boston Marathons. His oldest son will be running Boston this year on his birthday!
Fun Fact #2: Coach Wharton is learning the bass guitar, but his favorite instrument to play is the didjeridu.
Math can often feel like playing a game, like chess. You wouldn't have much success in chess if you didn't know how the pieces moved. So first you need to learn the rules, but just knowing the rules won't get you very far. You also need to learn strategies. To have success in your math classes, you need to learn mathematical formulas and then also learn problem solving strategies for how to solve difficult problems. Mathcounts problems are more like mathematical puzzles. To stick with the chess analogy, the problems would be similar to chess puzzles that you see in newpapers that ask you to find mate in 2. If you enjoy puzzles, and also enjoy math, then Mathcounts is the place for you!
