The MATHCOUNTS Program
MATHCOUNTS is a nationwide program that promotes math excellence for 6th, 7th and 8th grade students and combines the efforts of the education, business, government and the technological communities. It is a math skills coaching program based on higher thinking skills development with a series of progressive competitions at local, state and national levels. It motivates students to do well in math and recognizes and rewards them for achievement. The program also gives the math teachers an incentive to excel in their classrooms.
The 2017 state competition is March 25, 2017 at the Hilton Austin Airport Hotel - Austin.
The Countdown Round will be UNOFFICIAL at the 2017 Texas State MATHCOUNTS Competition. The Texas National Team will be determined using the Sprint Round & Target Round scores.
