Founded in 1983, MATHCOUNTS is a national enrichment program that helps students who love math, and students who fear math. Through the use of lively and challenging math competitions, Mathletes gain leadership skills, problem solving techniques and a general understanding for solving problems in real world situations. Mathletes compete in individual and team competitions, teaching students to utilize the real life skills necessary to work in a team setting as well as how to solve difficult problems on their own. The MATHCOUNTS program enhances our current education model by providing these business related leadership skills during the middle school years, or 6th through 8th grades. In short, MATHCOUNTS is preparing the future leaders of your organization. As the first program of its kind, MATHCOUNTS has the experience and a proven track record ensuring that the system is successful. Mathletes are extremely enthusiastic about the competitions and encouraged by the results that they obtain, and as business leaders we are encouraged by the results we see.
