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.
MATHCOUNTS® provides engaging mathematics programs to U.S. middle school students of all ability levels to build confidence and improve attitudes about mathematics and problem solving.
“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.” -MATHCOUNTS®
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. The National MATHCLUB Program is a mathematics enrichment initiative providing the structure and activities needed to encourage the formation of math clubs within schools. The Math Video Challenge is an innovative program that empowers students to be mathematics teachers, video producers, actors, and artists. Working together in teams, students create their own videos about mathematics problems and their associated concepts.
The MATHCOUNTS® School Handbook along with many other free resources located on the MATHCOUNTS® website can help you supplement your classroom teaching materials, run a MATHCLUB Program in your school, and/or prepare your students for the upcoming MATHCOUNTS® Competition Program.
The School Handbook has more detailed information about these programs and registration forms for each.
