Description

What is the AMC 8?

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.

Can my child participate?

In order to take the AMC 8, your child must be in grade 8 or below and must be born after May 13, 2004. Emory Math Circle is hosting the exam only for students enrolled in one of our classes, so non-Math Circle students may not register with us. Also, if your child's school is offering the exam, they should take the exam there; we have limited availability and must pay for every student who takes the test with us.

When and where is the exam? What is the cost?

The competition is on November 13, 2018, and Emory Math Circle will begin the exam at 7:00 PM. The exam will be held in room E208 of the Emory Math and Science Center, and students may arrive up to 20 minutes in advance to check in. Emory Math Circle is covering the cost of the exams, so there is no fee for participants; however, parents who are able to are asked to make a donation of $10 per child.


How do I register?

For each of your children, reserve one ticket here on EventBrite. If you realize between now and the test date that your child cannot participate, please cancel your ticket so that someone else may have the seat. Your child must be registered by September 30, 2018, in order to participate, since we must order the exams by October 1. If you want to register after the registration deadline, contact Emory Math Circle so that you can be added to a waitlist.


If you have any questions about the AMC 8, you can contact us.
