AMC-8/Middle School Math Day
The Department of Mathematical Sciences will host our Fifth Annual Middle School Math Day on Saturday, November 22, 2014.
The program will begin with the AMC-8 Competition, a contest sponsored by the Mathematical Association of America, and also have a mathematical talk, lunch and a team trivia contest.
Students in grades 6, 7 and 8 are encouraged to participate in the AMC 8. High scoring students are 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.
Place: FAU Boca Campus
Time: 9am to 2pm
