All About Math Counts

  • Welcome to Math Counts!

    The MATHCOUNTS Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that strives to engage middle school students of all ability and interest levels in fun, challenging math programs, in order to expand their academic and professional opportunities. Middle school students exist at a critical juncture in which their love for mathematics must be nurtured, or their fear of mathematics must be overcome. MATHCOUNTS provides students with the kinds of experiences that foster growth and transcend fear to lay a foundation for future success.

    For more than 30 years MATHCOUNTS has provided enriching, extracurricular opportunities to students and free, high-quality resources to educators. Every child is unique, but we believe allchildren are capable of seeing the beauty and joy of math, whether they come to us already passionate about math, or intimidated by it.

    There are many paths to math. We work to ensure that all students discover theirs.

    We cultivate talent in the nation's brightest young minds through theMATHCOUNTS Competition Series. We bring together students from all 50 states in a series of in-person contests - the only competition program of its kind.

     

    MATHCOUNTS is effective because we provide students with experiences that simply cannot be replicated in the classroom. An experience with MATHCOUNTS can mean the difference between self-doubt and self-confidence. It can turn today’s math students into tomorrow’s innovators, scientists, engineers and doctors.

    MATHCOUNTS shows students how math has meaning and value beyond the confines of the classroom.
