|A national math coaching and competition program that promotes 7th and 8th grade math achievement through grass-roots involvement in every U.S. state and several territories. At the beginning of each school year, the MATHCOUNTS Foundation distributes, free of charge, its School Handbook and other materials to schools across the country. Teachers and volunteers use these materials to coach student "mathletes," either as part of in-class instruction or as an extracurricular activity. This site provides information about MATHCOUNTS, registration opportunities, problems (a Problem of the Week covers a variety of topics, and always focuses on a current newsworthy event) and problem-solving strategies, competition results, and discussion forums for coaches, students, coordinators, and alumni.|
