A Typical Program YearDuring the fall/winter students work in teams of 4 to create a video based on a MATH COUNTS problem. The students must solve a math problem from this year's handbook and show a real-world application of the math concept used in the problem. Videos can be no longer than 5 minutes. Students post their completed videos to the Math Video Challenge website.
From mid-February through mid-March, the general public votes on the videos and the 100 videos with the most votes advance to the judging rounds. Students can vote for their own video as often as once a day during general public voting, and they also can ask their friends, family members and school community to vote.
A panel of expert judges reviews the top 100 videos and selects 20 semifinalists to advance to the second round of judging.Semifinalists are announced in late March; semifinalists receive certificates and recognition on the program website.
In early April, expert judges select 4 finalist videos to advance to the Math Video Challenge Finals. The 16 students who created these 4 videos, as well as each team's advisor, receive an all-expenses-paid trip to the 2018 Raytheon MATHCOUNTS National Competition in Washington, DC, where they present their videos to the 224 Competition Series national competitors.
At the Math Video Challenge Finals in May, the 224 Mathletes at the National Competition vote to determine the First Place Video. The 4 student who created the winning video each receive a $1000 scholarship. All videos created during the contest are added to the Math Video Challenge online archive, providing a free educational tool for students and teachers.
