American Mathematics Competition (AMC)
The American Mathematics Competitions are fun for all students who like math problem solving and enjoy challenging themselves to do the best they can.

Both the AMC 10 and the AMC 12 are 25-question, 75-minute multiple-choice contests. The AMC 12 covers the high school mathematics curriculum, excluding calculus. The AMC 10 covers subject matter normally associated with grades 9 and 10. To challenge students at all grade levels and with varying mathematical skills, the problems range from fairly easy to extremely difficult. Approximately 12 questions are common to both contests.

Typically, students who score in the top 5% on the AMC 12 or the top 2.5% on the AMC 10 are invited to take the American Invitational Mathematics Exam (AIME).

Students may not use calculators on the contests.

Competition dates are:
AMC-A: Thursday February 7
AMC-B: Wednesday February 13

Click on the link then select AMC; on the left side, select one of the two tabs for ONE AMC or TWO AMC s.
