UGA Mathcounts Outreach is a student-run organization sponsored by the UGA Honors Program that provides a unique opportunity for UGA students to give back to the Athens community by helping middle school students to strengthen their math skills and by serving as role models for Athens children.
As a part of the organization, volunteers devote approximately one hour a week to inspiring Athens-area middle school students by teaching new math concepts, practicing competition-style problems, and strengthening students’ problem areas.
Additionally, each Spring semester, the many volunteers involved with UGA Mathcounts Outreach host a friendly tournament for our Mathcounts students. To volunteer with UGA Mathcounts Outreach, only basic knowledge of middle school geometry, algebra, and other mathematical concepts is required.
Here is what Hannah Kopec had to say about her experience with Mathcounts:
I started volunteering as a coach with MathCounts my sophomore year. I was then a head coach my junior year and became Co-Treasurer my senior year. I will be the Co-Treasurer again this year while I earn my Masters in Accountancy and take the CPA Exam. MathCounts is a great organization and has taught me how much math education varies around the state of Georgia.
