Revision as of 18:39, 12 March 2008 by Temperal (talk | contribs) (aloha)

The AMC 8 is an exam for students in grades 8 and below, administered annually by the American Mathematics Competitions (AMC) to students all over the United States.

High scoring AMC 8 students are invited to take the more challengeing AMC 10 exam.

The AMC 8 is administered by the American Mathematics Competitions (AMC). Art of Problem Solving (AoPS) is a proud sponsor of the AMC. The test is intended to foster interest in mathematics and also to help middle school students learn mathematical problem solving.


Format

The AMC 8 is a 25 question, 40 minute multiple choice test. Problems generally increase in difficulty as the exam progresses. Through 2007, calculators were permitted, but they will not be in the future. Unlike the AMC 10 and 12, no points are deducted for wrong answers.

Curriculum

The AMC 8 tests mathematical problem solving with algebra, arithmetic, counting, geometry, logic, number theory, and probability.
