Encourage Minnesota students to excel in math and pursue STEM-related careers through a contribution to Minnesota MATHCOUNTS.
MATHCOUNTS is an enrichment coaching and competition program that provides the foundation for today's 6th, 7th and 8th grade students to achieve success in science, technology, engineering and mathematics-related careers.
Math achievement is the cornerstone to pursuing sciecne, technology or engineering.
The program stimulates student interest by making math achievement as challenging, exciting, and prestigious as school sports.
The Minnesota program is coordinated by members of the Minnesota Society of Professional Engineers, who work closely with teachers. It is one of the oldest and most successful education partnerships, involving volunteers, educators, industry sponsors and students.
In Minnesota, MATHCOUNTS has been reaching out to students and teachers since 1983. Each year, more than 1,200 Minnesota students participate in the program. They tell us this experience is often one of the most memorable and fun of their middle school years.
The program combines the use of MATHCOUNTS curriculum material and competitions, which challenge students’ math skills, develop self-confidence and reward achievement. MATHCOUNTS influences students at an age when they are formulating attitudes about math. The program’s timing in the educational process is selected to impact students when they can still elect to take the appropriate math courses through high school, preparing them for college and math-oriented careers.
