MATHCOUNTS is the largest tournament-style middle school math competition in the United States. It features a series of levels that starts from competitions within each school to determine the school's official representatives, followed by competitions at Chapter (local region), State, and National levels. This exciting journey brings math enthusiasts together to meet mathematical peers with similar experience. Due to the reach and prestige of this competition, its many levels of competition, and its ability to bring students to meet face-to-face, MATHCOUNTS is the focus of many middle school students' math contest careers.
If you're looking for a MATHCOUNTS mock test to try out, this is the place for you! Our electronic test will also report your strengths and weaknesses by topic.
You are welcome to share this mock test with your friends, classmates, students or peer educators, please do so by linking to the Daily Challenge with Po-Shen Loh: https://daily.poshenloh.com.
Loh draws from his experience as a mathematics professor at Carnegie Mellon University, and also as the national coach of the USA International Mathematical Olympiad team. His research and educational outreach takes him to cities across the world, reaching over 10,000 people annually through public lectures and in-person events, and he has featured in or co-created videos totaling over 5 million YouTube views.
He has been continually involved in math competitions since he was a contestant in the late 1990's: when he ranked 3rd at the National MATHCOUNTS competition, and won a silver medal for the United States of America as a contestant at the International Mathematical Olympiad. He can be followed on Instagram (@poshenloh), Twitter (@poshenloh), WeChat (罗博深数学), and Weibo (poshenloh / 罗博深).
Po-Shen Loh is not on any of the Mathematical Association of America's AMC problem committees, and has no knowledge of the actual problems that will appear on the AMC or AIME exams. He designed this mock test by carefully analyzing past AMC 8 exams, and using his experience coaching students to create original (new) problems.
