What is the AMD Mathletics competition?
AMD Mathletics is a competition designed to create a passion in the application of mathematics in solving day-to-day scientific and engineering problems. Students will be challenged to be active and creative in the use of mathematics. Different facets of mathematics will be introduced and tested. An electronics audience response system (clicker) will be used for participant to answer a series of questions in both numeric and multiple choices format.
