About MATHCOUNTS®


To secure America's global competitiveness, MATHCOUNTS inspires excellence, confidence and curiosity in U.S. middle school students through fun and challenging math programs. With the generous support of all MATHCOUNTS sponsors and volunteers, and leadership of the National Society of Professional Engineers at the local and state levels, MATHCOUNTS is providing today’s students with the foundation for success in science, technology, engineering and mathematics careers.

MATHCOUNTS is a national enrichment, club and competition program that promotes middle school mathematics achievement through grassroots involvement in every U.S. state and territory.

Currently in our 27th year, MATHCOUNTS is one of the country's largest and most successful education partnerships involving volunteers, educators, industry sponsors and students. President Barack Obama and former Presidents George W. Bush, William J. Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Ronald W. Reagan have all recognized MATHCOUNTS in White House ceremonies. The MATHCOUNTS program has also received two White House citations as an outstanding private sector initiative. Particularly exciting for our Mathletes® were the hour-long ESPN programs on each of the National Competitions from 2003-2005.

MATHCOUNTS offers two unique programs to middle school teachers and students: The MATHCOUNTS Competition Program and the FREE MATHCOUNTS Club Program.

The MATHCOUNTS Competition Program

The MATHCOUNTS Competition Program provides the extra incentive and the perfect atmosphere for students to push themselves to achieve more in mathematics. Consisting of fun and creative problems, the MATHCOUNTS competitions have written and oral rounds, as well as individual and team components. Though challenging and non-routine, the competition problems focus on the 6th through 8th grade standards of the National Council of Teachers in Mathematics.

MATHCOUNTS provides the materials for teachers and students to use as they prepare for the Competition Program. Participants advance through School, Chapter and State Competitions until the final 224 students are selected from 56 states and territories to advance to the MATHCOUNTS National Competition held each May. The National Competition adds an additional individual component called the Masters Round.

For more information, visit the Competition Program section of the website.

The MATHCOUNTS Club Program

Often referred to as the MCP, the MATHCOUNTS Club Program was introduced in 2007 for our 25th anniversary year. The MCP is a fun, challenging and FREE program aimed at engaging a wide spectrum of students. The MATHCOUNTS Club Program provides schools with the structure and activities to hold regular meetings of a math club. Depending on the level of student and teacher involvement, a school may receive a recognition plaque or banner and be entered into drawings for prizes.

For more information, visit the Club Program section of the MATHCOUNTS website.
