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.
AMC 8 is the first in a series of competitions consisting of 25 multiple choice question for 40-minutes. The exam does not require the use of Algebra or a calculator. The material included in the AMC 8 is the middle school mathematics curriculum. Possible topics include but are not limited to: probability, percents, elementary geometry, spatial visualization, reading and interpreting graphs, etc. The AMC 8 exposes students to interesting and challenging math problems that they may not normally experience in the K-12 mathematics classroom.
We work with students to prepare for the examination that is administered in schools in November. In 2018 the AMC 8 will take place on Tuesday, November 13.I am interested!
