American Mathematics Competition
The AMC is a prestigious exam-based competition ocurring in February open to all people.
The main purpose of the AMC is to spur interest in mathematics and to develop talent through the excitement of solving challenging problems in a timed multiple-choice format. The problems range from the very easy to the difficult. Students who participate in the AMC should find that most of the problems are challenging but within their grasp. The contest is intended for everyone from the average student to the very best student.
 
Two tests are offered, the AMC 10 and the AMC 12.
The AMC 10 is a 25 question, 75 minute multiple choice examination in secondary school mathematics containing problems which can be understood and solved with pre-calculus concepts. It can be taken only by 10th graders and under.
The AMC 12 is the same, but slightly more difficult and for 12th graders and under.
On neither test do you use a calculator.
 
A score above a certain mark qualifies participants to advance to the American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME), which finally selects students for the USA Mathematical Olympiad (USAMO).
