The Chapter competition of Mathcounts occurs in February when we take our team of eight to Purdue to compete against schools in our area. There are individual and team rounds. The goal for the day is to qualify (either as individuals or as a team) for the State Competition in March.
Samples are available through the contest website. ||
Qualifying for the team is done through the MathCounts School Test, usually given at the end of the MathCounts School Challenges in October. The team generally consists of eight students. After the team has been determined, further testing dictates who is a member of the competing team of four and who takes the test in the role of alternate.

As MathCounts is completely a TEAM event at East Tipp, points are awarded as written above to encourage a strong team performance. A perfect score in the individual round is 46.
