The American Mathematics Competition (AMC) is a contest sponsored by the Mathematical Association of America. More than 350,000 students from over 6,000 schools participate in the competition every year. The contest comprises of three levels: 1) the AMC 8 for students in grades 8 and below 2) the AMC 10 for students in grades 10 and below, and 3) the AMC 12 for students in grades 12 and below. The highest scorers from AMC 10 and AMC 12 will advance to the next level called the American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME). It is important to note that the top colleges now explicitly ask for AMC scores on applications.
AMC 10 is the second in a series of competitions that includes 25 multiple-choice questions, to be completed within 75 minutes. The AMC 10 covers concepts normally associated with grades 9 and 10. To challenge students at all grade levels with varying mathematical skills, the problems range from fairly easy to very difficult. Students who are in grade 10 or below and less than 17.5 years old on the day of the contest are eligible to take the exam.
We work with the student to prepare for the examination that is administered in schools in February. The next two round of AMC 10 (A and B) will take place on February 7th and 13th, 2019.I am interested!
