American Mathematics Competition at NHA


On Wednesday, February 17, students from New Hope Academy’s Yardley campus participated in the American Mathematics Competition (AMC), an annual event that measures middle-school and high-school students’ math proficiency and aims to strengthen the mathematical capabilities of the nation’s youth. The middle-school students were responsible for answering a  25-question, 40-minute, multiple choice examination in middle school mathematics designed to promote the development and enhancement of problem-solving skills. The high-school students were challenged to answer a 25-question, 75-minute, multiple choice examination in secondary school mathematics containing problems which can be understood and solved with algebra and geometry or pre-calculus, depending on the students’ mathematical level. This important national competition identifies those with truly exceptional mathematical talent. NHA applauds all who participated, for they are all winners!
