Math Counts

WELCOME TO MATH COUNTS!!

 

Dear Parents,

I will coaching Central York Middle School's Math Counts team this year and I would like to extend an invitation to your son/daughter to join this fun academic after school challenge!

WHEN IS IT?

Our meetings are held after school from 3:00 to 4:00 on Thursdays in room 23.  The first meeting is Thursday, September 24th, 2015.

 

WHAT IS IT?  

Math Counts is a nationwide competition program for middle school students.  Emphasis is placed on speed, accuracy, problem solving and teamwork. More information about the organization can be found at www.mathcounts.org.

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Students attend weekly meetings/practices.  We have a minimum of three levels of competition (school, county, and region).  ALL students in Math Counts will be able to compete at the school level.  Students who advance to the county level and/or students who attend at least 80% of meetings will receive a co-curricular point for the year.

Students are picked for the county competition based on their performance at the school competition and practice round completed at after school practices.

Schedule of Events for the Year:

Weekly  - Tuesday meetings after school

Saturday, December 5, 2012  - Practice Competition at Central York Middle School  (9 a.m. to about 1 p.m.) scores will be used to qualify students for the next competition

Tuesday, January 12th, 2013, 8:30 am-1:45 pm - York County Invitational Tournament at York College-scores will be used to qualify students for the next competition

Saturday, February 27th 2016 Millersville Competition only 10 competitors will be able to attend.

 
Candy needed!

Donations of candy for the countdown round and for rewarding positive team behavior would be greatly appreciated.  Candy must be individually wrapped, and should be no larger than a lollipop (small stuff goes farther).  Suggested candies are smarties, starburst, jolly ranchers, dum dums, gobstoppers, etc.

If your son/daughter is interested in joining please have them see me for the permission slip, or print the one attached and return to me. 

I am looking forward to another awesome year in Math Counts!
