The club provides rigorous, enticing enrichment mathematics learning opportunities and a platform for tournament participation and preparation. Additionally, MathCounts provides an avenue for students to engage in high-level mathematics and improve their computation, communication, and collaborative skills. In Kevin’s words: “I thought it was a great experience competing against other schools. There were many challenges and difficult problems throughout the competition to solve, and loads of enjoyment. It allowed me to truly feel all the fun in mathematics.”
