American Mathematics Competition


About the Competition

On Wednesday, February 19th, 2014 Park University will host the American Mathematics Competitions.

For over 60 years the AMC math contests have been the most respected school-based competitions in the nation. The AMC works with teachers, mathematicians, and professional organizations to provide high quality, challenging math problems aligned with curriculum standards. Many well-known colleges and universities request scores from the contests and use them for recruiting and admissions. The AMC 12 covers high school mathematics, and is for students in high school who are under 19.5 years of age. The AMC 10 covers mathematics normally associated with grades 9 and 10, and is for students under 17.5 years of age who are not enrolled in grades 11, 12, or equivalent. Both contests will be given in a convenient 75-minute interval, are 25 questions in length, with approximately 12 questions common to both contests. The AMC 10 and the AMC 12 contests are the first in the series that lead to the USA Team at the International Mathematical Olympiad. Encourage your students to reach for the stars!

The exam will start at 10 a.m. and end at 11:30 a.m. Following the exam, there will be a campus tour, a short presentation by faculty in Park’s Department of Computer Science and Mathematics, and lunch. The event will end at approximately 1:30 p.m. Parents of those competing are welcome to attend.
