Mathcounts is a competitive math program for gifted math students in grades 6-8 facilitated by Mrs. Ann DeJean. Mathcounts is a national program which holds competitions each year. On February, 10 students from STM will compete at the chapter level competition held at LSU, and, if we finish in the top three, four students will compete at the state level in Pineville, LA. We have been to state for the last 3 years, and are looking forward to a 4th trip! Every Mathcounts problems is a word problem, and most of them are quite tricky!
Mathcounts begins in early August and meets every Thursday after school (except for Mission Day). We will also have 3 Saturday sessions where we have mock competitions, pizza, and fun!
