Who Wants to be a Mathematician

Who wants to win $5000?  There is a contest titled "Who wants to be a Mathematician. The first two rounds are online and the final round is in San Diego in January. The first round must be done here at school with me on Wednesday September 20th.

Qualifying test: Contestants are chosen based on their scores on qualifying tests. There are two rounds of tests, which will be conducted online  thanks to Maplesoft, the Who Wants to Be a Mathematician technology sponsor. The first round will be Sept. 20th. There will also be a practice test available so you can become accustomed to the test procedure. See Mrs. Taylor for the login to get practice tests.

The test is 10 questions and you have 15 minutes to complete. No calculator is allowed. If you score an 8 or above you move on to the second round.

Let Mrs. Taylor know ASAP if you want to compete.
