Why MATHCOUNTS works

MATHCOUNTS motivates and rewards students by fostering teamwork and a competitive spirit.

More than a competition, MATHCOUNTS involves students and teachers in year-long coaching sessions and helps students improve their problem-solving skills.

MATHCOUNTS builds math skills, promotes logical thinking and sharpens analytical abilities.

MATHCOUNTS provides teachers with creative, state-of-the-art curriculum materials, free of charge.

MATHCOUNTS introduces students to math-related careers through contacts with engineers and other professionals who serve as volunteers.

MATHCOUNTS is educator-driven. Materials and activities are structured to meet student needs, as identified by educators. Materials are developed by members of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.
