Mathematics Program presents

AMC 8 Math Contest

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

The Bard Math Circle will host the AMC 8 Math Contest for the second year. The AMC 8, first offered in 1985, is an annual contest in middle school mathematics sponsored by the Mathematical Association of America. In 2012, more than 150,000 students from 2,300 schools participated in the AMC 8 contest, including 49 students at Bard College from around the Mid-Hudson Valley. The AMC 8 program at Bard will include an inspirational talk by Bard mathematics professor Sam Hsiao, and a panel discussion for parents entitled "Supporting Your Child as a High Achiever in Math and Science."

Note: The location of Sam Hsiao's talk has been moved to the Olin Language Center, room 115. The rest of the AMC 8 program will remain in the RKC.

Location: Reem-Kayden Center
