The Department of Mathematical Sciences will host our Eighth Annual Middle School Math Day on Saturday, November 17, 2018.
The program began with the AMC-8 Competition, a contest sponsored by the Mathematical Association of America, and also had a mathematical talk, lunch and a team trivia contest. Students in grades 6, 7 and 8 were encouraged to participate in the AMC 8. High scoring students will be invited to participate in the AMC 10 Contest in February.
The AMC 8 is a 25 question, 40 minute multiple-choice examination in middle school mathematics designed to promote the development and enhancement of problem solving skills. The AMC-8 provides an opportunity to apply the concepts taught at the junior high level to problems which cover a wide range of applications, and is offered in November annually.
