Welcome to the West Ridge MathCounts page! This is home to 2020-2021 1st place Travis Chapter MathCounts team!

MathCounts is a math problem solving program for students in grades 6 - 8. Each year, West Ridge sends a team to the TSPE (Texas Society of Professional Engineers) sponsored local competition held in February. Students qualify for this by attending practice meetings and taking a test in January at school. Qualifying teams and individuals from the local competition are then eligible to compete at the state competition in March. The national competition is held in May.

The MathCounts Competition consists of 4 rounds:

Sprint Round - 30 problems in 40 minutes, each problem worth 1 point, no calculators

Target Round - 8 problems given in pairs (2 at a time), 6 minutes a pair, each problem worth 2 points, calculators allowed

Team Round - 10 problems in 20 minutes, teams of 4 students, calculators allowed

Countdown Round - top 10 individual scorers go against each other in pairs to see who can answer accurately the fastest

In addition to participation in MathCounts, we will attend and compete in other math activities, such as the AMC 8 and AMC 10/12 (American Mathematics Competition), Spurs MarhCounts, MathWorks Competition etc

**We will resume MathCounts meeting in September 2021.**
