Our goal is to promote math learning through MATHCOUNTS competitions at Tuscaloosa and local regions.
What is MATHCOUNTS? MATHCOUNTS is a prestigious nationwide middle school mathematics competition. Across the states, tens of thousands of middle school students participate in MATHCOUNTS competitions each year. The competition at the local and state levels includes three parts of written tests: Sprint, Target, and Team Rounds. It also has an oral Count-down Round, where top contestants who excel in the first two rounds, Sprint and Target Rounds, are competed in a head-to-head fashion, like Jeopardy on TV.
Who are we? We are a group of professionals and educators who are passionate about promoting math education and competitions at Tuscaloosa and local areas.
