MATHCOUNTS is a nationwide program designed to boost the math competency of middle school students in our public school system. The program features a series of competitions with elimination rounds based on team and individual effort. Competitions start at the regional level, leading to a statewide competition and concluding with a national competition. Participation is open to any sixth, seventh, or eighth grade student. Nationwide involvement totals more than 350,000 students from 7,500 junior high schools.

Since 1992, UC Irvine administers the Orange County regional competition as well as the California statewide competition. UCI has built the Orange County program into the largest MATHCOUNTS region in the state.
