Bard College To Host National Middle School Math Competition
The AMC8 is a 25-question, 40-minute exam containing engaging math problems that are challenging at the middle-school level. The exam is intended to develop and enhance problem-solving skills and to promote enthusiasm for mathematics. Students are exposed to the richness of middle-school level mathematics at a deeper level than ordinarily encountered in the schools. Although geared toward middle-school students, upper elementary school students are welcome to enter the contest.
