The National Math Club Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to participate?

Nothing! Thanks to the support of our sponsors, there is no fee to participate in the National Math Club. Registered clubs receive the free Club in a Binder, online access to games and the MATHCOUNTS Club App, and are eligible to go for awards and prizes within the National Math Club. You can register today here!

Any group is eligible to participate in the National Math Club if the following statements are true for that group:

  1. The group consists of at least 4 U.S. students.

  2. The students in the group are in 6th, 7th and/or 8th grade.

  3. The group has regular in-person meetings.

Who sponsors the program?

MATHCOUNTS was founded by the National Society of Professional Engineers, National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and CNA Foundation. MATHCOUNTS is made possible through the generosity of corporations, foundations and individuals. You can learn more about our national sponsors here.

 

Can my enrichment and/or learning center participate?

Yes! Schools, chapters of larger organizations (for example, YMCA, Boys & Girls Club, Girl Scouts), enrichment/tutoring centers and neighborhood math circles are all eligible to participate in the National Math Club, as long as the group meets the eligibility requirements stated above.

 

How many students can participate?

There is no limit to the number of students who may participate in the National Math Club. Encourage every interested sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade student to get involved!

 

Can a school/organization have more than 1 officially registered club?

Yes! Multiple teachers from the same school can register for the National Math Club. As long as the club leader is different for each club and the school/organization meets the eligibility requirements stated above, then multiple clubs from the same school/organization can be registered.

 

What are Silver Level Status and Gold Level Status?

Once a club is registered, that club can apply for Silver Level Status and Gold Level Status to win prizes and awards. More information is available to registered club leaders in the Club in a Binder and at the Club Leader Section.

  • Silver Level Status recognizes and rewards those clubs with a high level of participation. Club leaders must log meetings and submit an application in order to be considered for Silver Level Status. Silver Level clubs that apply by the deadline receive a trophy, certificates for students, and entry into a drawing for a $250 gift card.
  • Gold Level Status recognizes and rewards those clubs that have already achieved Silver Level and also have demonstrated a high-level of success. Clubs must complete the Gold Level Project and submit an application and proof of the project's completion in order to be considered for Gold Level Status. Gold Level clubs that apply by the deadline receive a trophy (in lieu of the Silver Level trophy), banner, certificates for students, entry into a drawing for a $500 gift card, and entry into the Grand Prize Drawing for a $500 gift card and an all-expenses-paid trip for 4 students and the Club Leader to attend the 2018 Raytheon MATHCOUNTS National Competition in Washington, DC.  

 

Can a school participate in more than one MATHCOUNTS program?

Yes! Schools are eligible to participate in all three of our programs, and can be registered for all three in one year. Note, the eligibility requirements for the Competition Series are different from those for the National Math Club and the Math Video Challenge, so it is possible that a group (for example, a tutoring center) that is eligible for the National Math Club and the Math Video Challenge is not eligible for the Competition Series.
