2014 North Mississippi MATHCOUNTS Chapter Competition
Competition Date: Saturday, February 15, 2014
The MATHCOUNTS Competition Program is a nationally recognized program designed to excite and challenge middle school students (6th, 7th, and 8th graders) through fun and challenging levels of mathematics competitions. The University of Mississippi hosts the Northeast and Northwest Chapter Competitions each year in February.
The MATHCOUNTS Foundation is a non-profit organization that has been working with middle school students to promote excellence in mathematics for over a century. Each year, the MATHCOUNTS Foundation provides a School Handbook to every U.S. middle school to help middle school students at all learning levels improve their problem-solving skills.
The MATHCOUNTS School Handbook along with many other free resources located on the MATHCOUNTS website can help you (1) supplement your classroom teaching materials (2) run a MATHCLUB Program in your school and/or (3) prepare your students for the upcoming MATHCOUNTS Competition Program.
The National MATHCLUB Program is a math enrichment initiative providing the structure and activities needed to encourage the formation of math clubs within schools.
The Math Video Challenge is an innovative program that empowers students to be math teachers, video producers, actors and artists – all at the same time! Working together in teams, students will create their own videos about math problems and their associated concepts.
The School Handbook has more detailed information about these programs and registration forms for each.
The Center for Mathematics and Science Education and the School of Engineering invite you and your students to take part in the MATHCOUNTS Competition Program, The National MATHCLUB Program, and the Math Video Challenge.
