The Bard Math Circle is proud to offer the AMC 8 exam on November 14, 2017. This contest is intended to challenge middle school students with accessible mathematical concepts, but at a level that is above and beyond what is typically encountered in the school curriculum.

This activity is offered at no cost, but due to limited space, registration is required in advance. Parents or guardians must agree to a liability waiver and photo release for their child to participate.

Following the contest, participants will be treated to an engaging math talk by Bard Mathematician Japheth Wood. The entire program will run from 4:30pm - 6:30pm at Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson, NY.

*Please register as early as you can. We have limited space and you will be waitlisted if space fills up and we are unable to accommodate you.*
