Math Counts

 MATHCOUNTS® is a national math enrichment, coaching and competition program that promotes middle school mathematics achievement through grassroots involvement in every U.S. state and territory. Celebrating its 25th anniversary,MATHCOUNTS is one of the most successful education partnerships involving volunteers, educators, industry sponsors and students.

     Each year, thousands of teachers use the free MATHCOUNTS curriculum materials to supplement classroom materials or as part of an extracurricular student activity. Those wishing to fully capitalize on the ability of the creative MATHCOUNTS materials to challenge students and motivate them to develop strong math skills also participate in the MATHCOUNTS competition series.

     After several months of coaching, participating schools select students to compete individually or as part of a team in one of the more than 500 written and oral competitions held nationwide and in U.S. schools overseas. Winners at the local level proceed to state competitions, where the top 4 Mathletes® and top coach earn the right to represent their state or territory at the national level. At all levels, MATHCOUNTS challenges students' math skills, develops their self-confidence and rewards them for their achievements.
