Mathcounts-AK-2014-LOGO MATHCOUNTS is a national program designed to improve math skills among U.S. students. Each February, middle school students from across the state compete in the local MATHCOUNTS Competition. The local chapters are in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau and Remote. These Mathletes are some of the most hardworking young mathematicians in our state and they spend months preparing for the MATHCOUNTS Competitions with the support of parents, teachers and other volunteers. The top scoring students advance to the Alaska MATHCOUNTS State competition, which is held in March. These Mathletes compete for a chance to be on the Alaska team at National MATHCOUNTS competition held in May.


2015 National Mathcounts Team: Dominik Efta, Victor Zhou, Kaitlyn Theonnes, Kyle Farley-Robison, and Coach David Thomas.

We strive to make math engaging and interesting for all students of all abilities and interest levels. Our goal is to help each student to discover their own path to math, whether they need to cultivate their love of math or overcome their fear of it. It is important that we give these students the opportunity to reach their full potential. For further information, you may also visit MATHCOUNTS website at
