AMC 8

January 18 @ 6:00 pm - 6:40 pm

$10

The AMC 8 is a 25-question, 40-minute, multiple choice examination in middle school mathematics designed to promote the development of problem-solving skills. The AMC 8 provides an opportunity for middle school students to develop positive attitudes towards analytical thinking and mathematics that can assist in future careers. Students apply classroom skills to unique problem-solving challenges in a low-stress and friendly environment.

The material covered on the AMC 8 includes topics from a typical middle school mathematics curriculum. Possible topics include but are not limited to: counting and probability, estimation, proportional reasoning, elementary geometry including the Pythagorean Theorem, spatial visualization, everyday applications, and reading and interpreting graphs and tables. In addition some of the later questions may involve linear or quadratic functions and equations, coordinate geometry, and other topics traditionally covered in a beginning algebra course.

Limited spots available.  Registrations made before November 30th are $10 each and guaranteed a testing spot.  Registrations after November 30th will be $17 and only accepted if spots are available.

We are administering the AMC 8 in-person.  Arrangements may be made to participate online assuming MAA keeps this option and required conditions are met.  Requests to participate online must be made no later than January 6th.

Register through your MyNNVMath.org account (if you do not have one, you may easily create one at that website).
