American Math Competition

American Math Competition

The mission of the MAA's American Mathematics Competitions is to increase interest in mathematics and to develop problem solving through a fun competition. Teachers and schools benefit from the chance to challenge students with interesting mathematical questions that are aligned with curriculum standards at all levels of difficulty. In addition, students gain the opportunity to learn and achieve through competition with students in their school and around the world.
The AMC 12 covers high school mathematics, and is for students in high school who are under 19.5 years of age on the day of the contest. The AMC 10 covers mathematics normally associated with grades 9 and 10 and is for students under 17.5 years of age on the day of the contest who are not enrolled in grades 11, 12 or equivalent. Both contests are given in a convenient 75-minute interval, are 25 questions in length, with approximately 12 questions in common to both contests. The AMC 10 and AMC 12 are administered in schools in February.
