Check out the MATHCOUNTS Club Program that provides structure and activities for schools to hold regular math club meetings – all for FREE!  The program has been designed to engage students and encourage their enthusiasm for math using math related activities and is geared for students in the 6th, 7th and 8th grades.

Based on their participation, schools can achieve one of three levels: Gold, Silver or Bronze and each level offers different benefits.  Bronze level is achieved when the school’s coach signs up its math club. Once registered, a Box Resource Kit and MATHCOUNTS School Handbook are then sent to the school so they can get started.  Depending on eligibility, a school may also be able to participate in the MATHCOUNTS competition as well.
