    American Mathematics Competition (AMC) Grade 9/10 & Grade 11/12

    Wednesday November 8, 2023 PDD, 8-930am in P-12

     

    What is the AMC?

    The American Mathematics Competitions (AMC) provides an opportunity for high school students to develop positive attitudes towards analytical thinking and mathematics that can assist in future careers by applying classroom learned skills to unique problem-solving challenges in a low-stress and friendly environment. College admissions offices love to see problem-solving skills on applications. We will help use your AMC score for college application qualifications.  The AMC is the first in a series of competitions that lead all the way to the International Mathematical Olympiad. Students with top scores on the AMC may be invited to take the American Invitational Mathematics Exam. High achievers on that exam are invited to participate in the USA Mathematical Olympiad. This series of exams comprise the longest running and most prestigious high school mathematics competitions in the country.

     

    Tips for the AMC

    The contest is out of 150 points. Twenty-five questions in 75 minutes. Six points are given for a correct answer, 0 points for an incorrect answer and 1.5 points for an answer left blank. Students should consider this scoring system as they decide whether or not to guess on a question; if they can narrow down their answer choices to three or less, it is probably advantageous to guess, if not, they might want to skip the question altogether.
