MATHCOUNTS Overview


MATHCOUNTS is a national competition series that is ideal for students who have a talent and

a passion for math who need to be challenged.* https://www.mathcounts.org/programs/competition-series

Forbush Middle School has an active MATHCOUNTS team each year. At the beginning of the

school year students are asked to sign up if they are interested in participating in

MATHCOUNTS. We meet once weekly after school (usually starting in September). Students

compete in a school competition to determine the team. We take 4 students to the regional

competition to represent the school and 4 students who participate in the regional competition as

individual competitors. The regional competition is generally in February. The students who

participate tell me they feel they have definitely been challenged! This is a great

opportunity for students who are looking for the chance to work with other talented students to

solve very difficult problems!
