Sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade “mathletes” spend the morning working in teams to solve equations and, in the afternoon, compete fiercely in a spelling-bee-style elimination that determines a single star. The winner will travel to Washington, D.C., in May for the national finals of MathCounts, a competition designed to boost and recognize the math skills of public school students. UC Irvine faculty and staff volunteers have organized and run the event for decades, and act as judges and announcers.
