The Math Video Challenge is an innovative program that challenges students to create a video that solves a math problem and explains its real-world application. Students have the opportunity to apply their creativity, technology and communications abilities—skills not typically associated with mathematics.
Outcomes of Program:
MATHCOUNTS programs are designed to build problem-solving and math skills. With challenging and interesting math problems, as well as innovative and creative programs that tap into a variety of skills, students of all levels become better critical thinkers.
The inclusive, supportive atmosphere provide by MATHCOUNTS programs also help students feel more confident in their abilities, preparing them to continue with STEM and persevere in the face of challenges.
Any group of four U.S. middle school students can participate in the Math Video Challenge. Students work together on their video project and submit it online between February and March. Top videos advance to judging rounds; semifinalists are announced in March. Finalists are announced in March and present their videos at the National Competition in May. Video teams have a lot of flexibility in creating their video, and MATHCOUNTS provides numerous resources and tips for making a video.
