Mendocino College hosting annual middle school math competition

Mendocino College is again hosting the AMC8 math competition for middle school students.

The competition is open to all students in the sixth through eighth grades in Lake and Mendocino counties and is being held at the college’s Ukiah campus on Tuesday, Nov. 18, at 4 p.m.

The purpose of the competition is to increase interest in mathematics and problem solving through a fun competition.

Students, 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.

Topics covered will include probability, estimation, percentages, spatial visualization, everyday applications, and reading and interpreting graphs.

This is the third year that Mendocino College has hosted the competition.

Leslie Banta, assistant professor of mathematics, spearheaded organization of the contest because she noticed the lack of local math competitions.

“Mendocino College is interested in reaching out to the larger math communities in middle and high schools, and this is a good opportunity for future Mendocino College students to visit the campus,” she stated. “At the competition we hosted last year, we had over 60 participants from both Lake and Mendocino counties. This year, we hope to have even more.”

In addition to the 40-minute competition, Mendocino College math faculty will be on hand to answer questions about Mendocino College and participants will be given a brief campus tour by Mendocino College students.

Registration forms for the competition are being made available to local middle schools and can be requested directly by contacting Professor Banta at [email protected] .

The entrance fee is $5 per participant and can be waived for financial reasons.

The registration deadline is Friday, Nov. 7.
