Who Wants to Be a Mathematician: Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., organized by Michael A. Breen and Annette W. Emerson, AMS; and William T. Butterworth, Barat College of DePaul University. Come watch ten of Phoenix's top high school students as they have the chance to compete for cash and prizes by answering questions about mathematics. There is no partial credit to agonize over, and the top prize is $2,000. Contestants can ask for help from the audience, so the more people in the audience who know mathematics, the better it is for the contestants. You are invited to come and take part in this educational and fun presentation.
