MathCounts in California: Countdown Round?

Recommended Posts

MC newbie coach here in California. I'm reading in the handbook that chapter competitions in some states have an official Countdown Round, that is, one that is actually scored and not for fun. Some states either omit the CR or do it for fun.


Does anyone know if the chapter competitions in California include an official Countdown Round? Thanks for your help!

I'm pretty sure the countdown round is unofficial in California. California is the only state to have its state competition in two places (Southern California and Northern California). For that reason, the state countdown round can't be official. And since the MathCounts rules specify that the chapter countdown match the state countdown in official/unofficial status, I conclude that the California chapters have an unofficial countdown.


I wish your students good luck and lots of fun!
