East Middle School Math Counts ClubThe National Math Club is a national program that gives students the opportunity to engage in mathematics that is non-competitive, fun and different from "textbook math." Created in 2007, it is a completely free MATHCOUNTS program.
How Does It Work?
The National Math Club is designed to be very flexible so that different types of groups of all sizes can participate. The only restrictions placed on a group that wants to participate are:
- the group must consist of at least 4 U.S. students,
- the students in the group must be in sixth-, seventh- or eighth-grade, and
- the group must have regular, in-person meetings.
Once a club is registered, that club can apply for Silver Level Status and Gold Level Status to win prizes and awards. More information is available to registered club leaders in the Club in a Binderand at the Club Leader Section.
- Silver Level Status recognizes and rewards those clubs with a high level of participation. Club leaders must log meetings and submit an application in order to be considered for Silver Level Status. Silver Level clubs that apply by the deadline receive a trophy, certificates for students, and entry into a drawing for a $250 gift card.
- Gold Level Status recognizes and rewards those clubs that have already achieved Silver Level and also have demonstrated a high-level of success. Clubs must complete the Gold Level Project and submit an application and proof of the project's completion in order to be considered for Gold Level Status. Gold Level clubs that apply by the deadline receive a trophy (in lieu of the Silver Level trophy), banner, certificates for students, entry into a drawing for a $500 gift card, and entry into the Grand Prize Drawing for a $500 gift card and an all-expenses-paid trip for 4 students and the Club Leader to attend the 2018 Raytheon MATHCOUNTS National Competition in Washington, DC.
East Middle School has achieved Gold Level Status for 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 school years.
