AMC-8/Middle School Math Day 2024

The Department of Mathematical Sciences will host our Thirteenth Annual AMC8 Middle School Math Day on Saturday, January 20, 2024. This year, our program will return to an In-Person format. There will be a limit of 100 participants with a parent or teacher. Please note that may be paper-and-pencil verion or a computerized version of the AMC8, but emails are needed for all attendees. Students will be taken to a computer lab for the AMC8 contest.

The program will begin with a Mathematical Talk, "The Science of encryption or how to communicate security," by Dr. Veronika Kuchta, followed by our Team Contest, the Math Trivia Challenge by Dr. Tomas Schonbek.

After lunch all students will take the AMC-8 Competition , a contest sponsored by the Mathematical Association of America. High scoring students from last year will be encouraged to participate in the AMC 10 Contest in November 2024.
