## AMC 8 (American Math Competition)

**What is 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.

If your school does not offer the AMC -8 competition, you can register to take the test with Orlando Math Circle.

## Live Math Problem Solving Class

We will be working on a few interesting problems together. One has to do with baking brownies. We might even have brownies to help you visualize and experience the difficulties of cutting a cake sheet in half. There will be obstacles and you will work together to solve the Brownie Problem.

At the end of the class we will go over a couple of AMC 8 Problems. Bring an AMC 8 problem you want to solve together in a group.

### Guest Speaker - Dr. Jami Valentine

One of the ways OMC engages students in mathematics is by bringing guest speakers to discuss math-related careers and projects to the students. On March 18th, Dr. Jami Valentine, a physicist who works for the US Patent and Trademark office, gave a talk to the Meadowbrook Middle School students. Dr. Valentine earned a master’s degree at Brown University, then went to Johns Hopkins University, where she studied the spin properties of rare earth metals under Professor C.L. Chien. In 2006 Jami became the first African-American woman to earn a Ph.D. in physics from Johns Hopkins University.
