Harvest Park's Competitive MATHCOUNTS team began in 1998. MATHCOUNTS was established in 1983 with a purpose of providing middle school students with challenging problems that promote logical thinking, sharpen math skills and motivating students to continue to study and appreciate mathematics. The team at Harvest Park has had some success through the years. If you're looking to challenge yourself and you want to learn, competitive MATHCOUNTS may be a team you'll enjoy. We meet Thursday's after school in my classroom (D-32). Some weeks we will learn from one another and many weeks will be spent competing.
Tryouts for this year’s competitive team will be on Thursday September 15th and 22nd (students attend both weeks). We will meet in the amphitheater right after school and students should be out no later than 4:15 both days. Students will take two individual tests (no calculator). The top 25 students overall will be invited to join the competitive team. Additionally, the top 5 seventh graders not in the top 25 and the top 5 sixth graders not in the top 25 will also be invited.
If you would be interested in competing with us this year, please complete this google form (log into your PUSD account to complete form). I’ll look forward to seeing those of you that have completed the form after school on September 15th and 22nd.
