Summer 2009 | Archives

Math book The American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges (AMATYC) is an organization dedicated to providing a national forum for the improvement of mathematics instruction in the first two years of college. There are approximately 160 participating community colleges nationally.

MCC was the only college in Nebraska offering the challenging AMATYC math exam this year. MCC recently offered the AMATYC student math exam at various MCC campus locations. Forty-eight students competed in round one, and 23 students continued on to compete in round two. Student winners from MCC were Jeff Manzer and James Eddy.

This national math exam, open only to students at participating community colleges, has prizes donated by various individuals, corporations and publishing companies. Current plans are to offer the next AMATYC round one math exam on Friday, Oct. 16, from 2 to 3 p.m. at Fort Omaha, South Omaha and Elkhorn Valley Campus Testing Centers. Students do not have to be enrolled in a math class to participate, and there is no cost to students.
