Mathematical Association of America Competition

A number of students in grades 10 –12 have been chosen to participate in this year’s AMC mathematical contest on February 5.

The mission of the MAA (Mathematical Association of America) Competitions is to increase interest in mathematics and to develop problem solving through a fun competition. Students gain the opportunity to learn and achieve through competition with students in their school and from around the world. 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.

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 are given in a convenient 75-minute interval, 25 questions in length, with approximately 12 questions common to both contests.

Thank you to Ms. Mary Tsoulfa, Math Coordinator for her efforts in organizing the competition.

We look forward to learning the results in the coming months!
