MATHCOUNTS® National Competition

MATHCOUNTS winner with Bill Swanson.

Every year, nearly 6,000 schools and more than 17,000 volunteers participate in MATHCOUNTS, a national competition program that promotes mathematics achievement with middle school students across the United States. The program culminates in the Raytheon MATHCOUNTS National Competition, which brings together 224 middle school mathletes from all 50 states, D.C., U.S. territories and schools from the Departments of Defense and State.

Raytheon's Support of MATHCOUNTS

In addition to serving as the title sponsor of the MATHCOUNTS National Competition (through 2018), we are a supportive partner of the MATHCOUNTS Foundation, a nonprofit organization that helps U.S. middle-school students excel in math. We provide significant financial contributions to help middle school students become creative problem solvers and develop the skills needed to become the math and science leaders of the future.

Doing the Math on Facebook

We use real MATHCOUNTS competition questions to enhance our interactive challenge on our Facebook page. Middle school students and adults alike can answer questions, advance to higher playing levels and challenge friends as they make their way to Mathlete status online.
