MATHCOUNTS promotes math excellence and competition for sixth, seventh and eighth-grade students across North Dakota and nationally. Students begin each year by working through special study materials followed by a school team (four students each) and individual competition. The highest-scoring school teams and individuals advance to county competitions where they attempt to qualify within ten regions for the state competition. The top four individual finalists and the top team coach at the state competition receive an all-expense paid trip to compete at the national competition. This rewarding experience helps to promote the engineering profession as well as education in mathematics, science, and technology. In today’s increasingly technological world and information, student participation in programs that promote teamwork and individual success, such as MATHCOUNTS, are an integral part of their education.
Our primary funding source is obtained through reimbursement from the national registration fees. Secondary funding is provided by the corporate sponsors listed above as well as financial and in-kind services provided by the North Dakota Society of Professional Engineers, County Superintendents Association and firms like yours. We encourage your firm or even you personally to consider a contribution to this program. If you would like additional information about the program please email us.
