Students to participate in math competition

Los Alamos High School will participate in the American Mathematics Competition on Feb. 8. The mission of the Mathematical Association of America in offering this competition is to increase interest in mathematics and to develop problem solving through a fun competition.  
Teachers and schools benefit from the chance to challenge students with interesting mathematical questions that are aligned with curriculum standards at all levels of difficulty. Students gain the opportunity to learn and achieve through competition with students in their school and from around the world.
The AMC offers a contest with an emphasis on problem solving, not just computation. The problems are for all students with a mix of easy, challenging and fun questions. Top students can receive recognition through special honors and awards, including the best in each school and the best in each state.
The contest will be held at LAHS on Feb. 8. A $5 fee is due at sign up, which begins now and will go through Dec.15. Interested students may sign up in the math office, Room E-21, at LAHS. Practice options may be found at www.amc.maa.org
