MAA MinuteMath at USA Science & Engineering Festival

In the Washington, D.C. area the weekend of April 28-29? Stop by the MAA Booth (#730) at the USA Science & Engineering Festival and play "Are You Smarter Than an Eighth Grader in Math?" Match wits with eighth-grade students by answering questions from the AMC 8 mathematics contest.

More than 150,000 students across the country compete each year in the American Mathematics Competitions (AMC 8), organized by the Mathematical Association of America. The AMC 8 is a 25-question, 40-minute, multiple-choice test in middle-school mathematics to promote problem-solving skills. Problems not only range from easy to difficult but also cover a wide range of applications of mathematics.
