The AMC 8 is a 25 question, 40 minute multiple choice examination in middle school mathematics designed to promote the development and enhancement of problem solving skills. This year, the AMC 8 will be given in math classrooms or the MPR at GRMS on Tuesday, November 15, 2016, 3:00-4:00 pm. We will let you know which classrooms as we get closer to the test date. This is not a required exam for any students. It is entirely optional and quite challenging.
The test is not free. We are asking each participant to return $5 (cash or a check made out to GRMS) along with the registration form. Turn in the form and money to your math teacher or Mrs. Bergen by Friday, September 30th, 2016.
To register, go to the attached file and print the page.
The examination provides students an opportunity to apply the concepts taught at the middle school level to problems which not only range from easy to difficult but also cover a wide range of applications. Many problems are designed to challenge students and to offer problem solving experiences beyond those provided in most middle school math classrooms. Additionally, the AMC 8 can promote excitement, enthusiasm and positive attitudes toward mathematics.
