Math Competitions

Today is World Math Day.  Kids around the world are competing with each other to win prizes.  To know more about it go to http://www.worldmathday.com/.  If you or your students didn’t get to participate this year, put it on your calendar for next year!

Also, this Friday is the AMATYC Student Mathematics League Competition for Monroe Community College (MCC) students. This is Round 2 of the competition.  Two Year Colleges around the nation could have theirs between February 13 and March 7.  MCC student Bozhong Kang came in second and an MCC team came in fourth last year.  Way to go MCC!

Next week is the NYS-MATYC Competition for MCC students which happen to have the top spot for the state!  Prizes will be distributed at the NYSMATYC Annual Conference in Suffern, NY on April 5, 2008.  It’s probably not a coincidence that April is Mathematics Awareness Month.

Students go for it and enjoy your prizes!
