MATHCOUNTS School Handbook

2014-2015 MATHCOUNTS Student Handbook

Each year the MATHCOUNTS School Handbook is provided electronically for free to every middle school in the U.S. It contains 250 creative problems meeting National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards for grades 6-8. Problems are indexed according to topic and difficulty level, and also are mapped to the Common Core State Standards. Download the 2015-2016 MATHCOUNTS School Handbook here!

*NOTE: This version of the handbook includes an answer key, but not the complete solutions. Registered Competition Series schools receive the hard-copy of the 2015-2016 MATHCOUNTS School Handbook with solutions as part of the School Competition Kit.
