MATHCOUNTS School Handbook

 

 

The 2021-2022 MATHCOUNTS School Handbook is the primary resource for the Math Video Challenge. Teams must select one of the 250 problems in this year's School Handbook (or the School Handbook Remix) for their video. 

Problems in the School Handbook are arranged in sets of 10; each set of 10 is like a mini-competition with problems covering different topics. As students work through the problems sets, the difficulty level increases. 

The School Handbook Remix contains the same 250 problems, but they are arranged by topic which may make certain types of problems easier for students and teachers to find.
