FCDS Middle Schoolers Ace the AMC 8

In January, 48 Middle School students competed in the American Mathematics Contest 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. This is a national contest and middle school students from across the country competed. This contest was tough! Our students had the opportunity to challenge themselves and apply their mathematical problem solving with algebra, arithmetic, geometry, logic, number theory, and probability.
