MATHCOUNTS is the nation's premier middle school math competition. Below are links to materials provided on the MATHCOUNTS site, as well as lessons that are helpful preparation for the competition.
Ordering Materials is easy, and coaches starting programs can usually find funding. If you are interested in starting a MATHCOUNTS program at your school (in North Carolina), there is usually funding available. Contact John Goebel (email@example.com) for information about available funding for a MATHCOUNTS team at your school.
