The AMC 8, a math competition offered through the Mathematical Association of America, is a FUN event, as well as a serious math competition. Students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades are encouraged to take the test. Math-talented students in the 5th grade may also consider this as an above-level opportunity, as there is no lower age limit.
Project MEGSSS is offering an AMC 8 Masterclass that will consist of three 2-hour classes, to be held on the Sundays prior to the AMC 8 math competition. Masterclasses will be held on Sundays, October 29, November 5, and November 12 2017 from 2 to 4 p.m. at Maryville University. Masterclasses are offered for both introductory and advanced competitors, based on age and mathematics experience. Please be sure to indicate your student's current grade level and comment on any previous math competition experience. Students will be screened and placed in the entry-level or advanced classes. Dr. Doug Hunt, a Project MEGSSS faculty member, will be running these classes, supported by our staff and student volunteers. The cost for this three-session masterclass will be $90.
Project MEGSSS, in cooperation with Maryville University, is proud to sponsor an Open AMC 8 Competition in the St. Louis Region. Students who do not have the opportunity to take the AMC 8 at their school are eligible to take it with Project MEGSSS. A student may register for either or both offerings (e.g. masterclasses and/or competition). Please note: this registration covers the masterclass only; to register for the competition, click HERE.
Financial assistance is available; please don't hesitate to apply if finances would prevent your child from attending. In particular, if your family is eligible for federal lunch programs or has an income at that level, substantial assistance is available.
