The Math Video Challenge is an innovative program that empowers middle school students to be math teachers, video producers, actors and artists—all at the same time! Working together in teams, students create their own videos about math problems and the concepts associated with them. Formerly known as the Reel Math Challenge, the Math Video Challenge is designed to get students excited about math while giving them the opportunity to hone their creativity and communication skills. During the year, students create a video that teaches the solution to one of the problems from the MATHCOUNTS School Handbook and also demonstrates the real-world application of the math concepts used in the problem.
Getting started in the Math Video Challenge
Math Video Challenge registration is completed via an online application through Jotform. The application can be found here . Each team interested in participating for the 2022–2023 program year must submit an application for the program and meet all of the team requirements.
