Students can test math skills in competition at USF
Monday, October 8, 2012 7:49 AM
The University of Saint Francis, Fort Wayne, will host the state's only American Mathematics Competition (AMC) 8 on Nov. 13 in the Doermer Family Center for Health Science Education.
First administered in 1950, the AMC 8's purpose is increasing interest in mathematics and science and developing problem-solving ability through a series of friendly mathematics competitions for students in grades five through eight.
Activities will begin at 6:30 p.m. with food and refreshments, and the 40-minute tests will follow. A program will be available to parents during the tests, and the event will wrap up with awards.
The university will offer an optional one-hour AMC preparatory session in the Doermer building on Oct. 24 at 6 p.m. For additional practice materials, go to amc.maa.org. To register for the competition, contact Carolyn Exner at email@example.com or 399-8067.
