The MATHCOUNTS Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that strives to engage middle school students of all ability and interest levels in fun, challenging math programs, in order to expand their academic and professional opportunities. Middle school students exist at a critical juncture in which their love for mathematics must be nurtured, or their fear of mathematics must be overcome. MATHCOUNTS provides students with the kinds of experiences that foster growth and transcend fear to lay a foundation for future success.   Founded in Illinois more than 30 years ago, MATHCOUNTS provides enriching, extracurricular opportunities to students and free, high-quality resources to educators. Every child is unique, but we believe all children are capable of seeing the beauty and joy of math, whether they come to us already passionate about math, or intimidated by it.

The ISPE Foundation sponsors the Illinois State MATHCOUNTS competition. School-based teams composed of four students compete through chapter, state and ultimately the national competitions. Illinois' program is one of the largest in the nation. 

Local MATHCOUNTS competitions are held by ISPE Chapters during the month of February. Winning teams from the chapter-level competitions move on to the Illinois State competition held in March. State winners advance to May National Competition.
