Math Enrichment Club

MathCountsOur Math Club follows the MATHCOUNTS Program, which heightens students’ interests in mathematics by making mathematical achievement challenging and exciting. 

 

The club will focus on problem-solving strategies and higher-level math concepts. Weekly, the mathletes will solve problems individually and in cooperative groups. High performers in the club may be selected to represent Churchill Road in the Fairfax County MATHCOUNTS competition. This competition usually takes place on a Saturday in February. In addition, all club members are eligible to participate in the AMC8 in December, which will be administered during one of our math club meetings.


Who Should Participate

For CRS students, MATHCOUNTS is open to 6th graders only (6th, 7th, and 8th-grade students compete in the competition). Students interested in MATHCOUNTS should be high performers in math who wish to be challenged by solving middle school math problems. Students who are currently enrolled in Algebra or 6th Grade Advanced Math are encouraged to consider participating. MATHCOUNTS is not recommended for students who need help understanding grade-level math skills.
