Math League & MathCounts
Notice for start of 2020-2021 School Year
It is unclear whether Math League will be held this year. When a decision is made, we will post information here.
For more information about Math League, contact Pierce math specialist Tara Washburn at email@example.com.
The national MathCounts competitions will be held remotely this year. While Ms. Hansel is unable to run a MathCounts practice group at Pierce, we have a few spots open for Pierce students to sign up to take the online competitions. If you are interested, please contact Alison Hansel at the email below for more information about how to register.

Check out MATHCOUNTS Week—a virtual celebration for the entire MATHCOUNTS community! MATHCOUNTS is hosting exciting online math activities at Pi Time (3:14pm ET) each day next week, 5/11 through 5/15. On Friday, the finale will be a Q & A with John Urschel, mathematician and former NFL football player.
AND YOU CAN TAKE THE MATHCOUNTS STATE COMPETITION!
This free, just-for-fun, online version of the 2020 State Competition will be available on the AoPS website for anyone to take from 8am ET on Wednesday, May 13 until 12pm ET on Thursday, May 14. Everyone who participates can enter into a prize drawing for TI calculators (not based on score)!
The Open MATHCOUNTS State Competition will include a Sprint, Target and Team Round with the same time constraints as in-person MATHCOUNTS competitions. Contestants do not have to compete in the Team Round to compete in the individual rounds, but we encourage you to form a team and try it out! For this event, schools are not limited in the number of students or teams that can compete. Learn more about finding and competing with a team here
The Open MATHCOUNTS State Competition will end on Friday with the world's largest interactive Countdown Round. Create an AoPS account to participate!
