MathCounts Spring Training is an online contest designed to prepare sixth- and seventh-graders for the following year's East Tipp MathCounts Team. From their own homes, contestants download sets of past MathCounts problems online, submit their answers to Mr. Rice, and earn points based on the number of correct answers. Anyone reaching 100 points before the stated deadline earns the updated version of the 'Secrets of ETMC' CD for summer study. Contestants are allowed one set of submissions per day from mid March to mid May.
Samples are available through the contest website.
Any sixth- or seventh-grade East Tipp student may participate in the contest. Fifth-graders headed to East Tipp have also participated.
