Competition Math for Middle School Students


Every student can compete in math contests. AMC 8 and Mathcounts require no more than middle school math. Taking part in contests will help students develop problem solving skills that last through all of life.

The teacher, Matthew, is excellent at inspiring and motivating young students toward math. All of his students last year liked him and enjoyed his class a lot!
