What is MathCOUNTS?

The MATHCOUNTS® Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that reaches students in grades 6-8 in all US states and territories with 3 extracurricular math programs. More than a quarter million students participate in our programs and use our resources each year.

Mission

MATHCOUNTS® provides engaging math programs to US middle school students of all ability levels to build confidence and improve attitudes about math and problem solving.

Approach

"We make learning math fun. We believe middle school is a critical juncture when a love of math must be encouraged, and a fear of math must be overcome. Our programs build problem solving skills and positive attitudes about math, so students embrace challenges and expand their academic and career opportunities in the future."

Programs

The MATHCOUNTS® Competition Program is a nationally recognized program designed to excite and challenge middle school students (6th, 7th, and 8th graders) through fun and challenging levels of mathematics competitions.
Competition Series
The National MATHCLUB Program is a math enrichment initiative providing the structure and activities needed to encourage the formation of math clubs within schools.

National Math Club
The Math Video Challenge is an innovative program that empowers students to be math teachers, video producers, actors and artists. Working together in teams, students will create their own videos about math problems and their associated concepts.
