Support Who Wants to Be a Mathematician

This exciting game always draws a large crowd as the host, Mike Breen, leads students through a series of questions that challenge their mathematical thinking processes.  As the high school students compete for prizes provided by the AMS and other donors, both observers and participants are on the edge of their seats waiting to see who will walk away with the grand prize. 

Held throughout the country, Who Wants to Be a Mathematician is the premiere mathematical game for students and a perfect example of how fun and engaging math can be.
