About this Event

 

American Mathematics Competition

by Mathematical Association of America

Grades 7 to 12 - $10

What is the AMC 10/12?

The AMC 10 and AMC 12 are both 25-question, 75-minute, multiple choice examinations in high school mathematics designed to promote the development and enhancement of problem-solving skills.

The AMC 10 is for students in 10th grade and below, and covers the high school curriculum up to 10th grade. Students in grade 10 or below and under 17.5 years of age on the day of the contest can take the AMC 10. The AMC 12 covers the entire high school curriculum including trigonometry, advanced algebra, and advanced geometry, but excluding calculus. Students in grade 12 or below and under 19.5 years of age on the day of the contest can take the AMC 12.

These competitions are administered around the country on Wednesday, February 10, 2021. The AMC 10/12 provides an opportunity for high school students to develop positive attitudes towards analytical thinking and mathematics that can assist in future careers. The AMC 10/12 is the first in a series of competitions that eventually lead all the way to the International Mathematical Olympiad (see Invitational Competitions).

What are excluded are trigonometry, advanced algebra, and advanced geometry. The AMC 12 covers the entire high school mathematics curriculum including the above as well as trigonometry, advanced algebra, and advanced geometry but excludes calculus.

Q. Who is eligible to take the AMC 10 and the AMC 12?

A. Students with a passion for problem-solving who are in grade 10 or below and under 17.5 years of age on the day of the contest can take the AMC 10. Students in grade 12 or below and under 19.5 years of age on the day of the contest can take the AMC 12.

Q. When are official scores and reports released for the AMC 10 and 12?

A. It takes approximately three weeks from the competition date to score and report the AMC 10 and AMC 12 answer forms. Results are included in The AMC Toolkit: Results and Resources for Competition Managers link sent electronically. The AMC office will send the results link by email as soon as the answer forms are scored. If you have not received your results in a digital report via email from the AMC program within 30 days after competition dates, please contact AMC to verify that your answer forms were in fact received. The AMC Toolkit: Results and Resources for Competition Managers is emailed to the competition manager whose email is listed on the registration form used to order the competition.

Q. Can a student take both competitions?

A. Yes, as long as a student is eligible to take the appropriate competitions. That is, a 10th grader or below can take the both AMC 10 and the AMC 12, and an 11th or 12th grader can take the AMC 12 . However, in order to do this the school will have to register for both dates and order bundles for each competition.
