Information for lesson "Math Counts Competition (6th-8th grade)"
Description: Mathcounts (stylized as MATHCOUNTS) is a middle school mathematics competition held in the United States. Its founding sponsors include the CNA Foundation, the National Society of Professional Engineers, and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. The competition is designed for sixth, seventh, and eighth graders only. The subject matter includes geometry, combinatorics, and algebra. Although they are included in some of the aforementioned subjects, complex numbers, calculus, and trigonometry are not featured in the contest because these subjects are considered in general to be more advanced than middle-school mathematics. Instead, the contest emphasizes problem solving skill within traditional middle-school mathematics.
Resources: OpenCourseware from Mathcounts, Khan Academy, MIT, Intel, Google, UC Davis, UCLA, UC Berkeley, Stanford along with many of the World's finest University's.
