Differences Between MATHCOUNTS and MATH CLASS

 

MATHCOUNTS does NOT replace your child’s math class.

 

MATHCOUNTS does NOT have anything to do with what math class your child is enrolled.

 

MATHCOUNTS is a “club” similar to Pathways or TSA. https://www.mathcounts.org/

 

MATHCOUNTS is given a class block to prepare for competition similar to robotics, band, pathways, …

 

We hold one tryout for students to qualify for MATHCOUNTS. If your child does or does not make the team it does NOT affect their mandatory math class.

 

If your child becomes part of the MATHCOUNTS team then your child will also take a 6th,7th, or 8th grade math course.  He/she will have two math classes on their schedule.

Math Counts tryouts will be held on June 24th & 26th.
