The American Mathematics Competitions (AMC) consist of a series of increasingly difficult tests for students in middle school and high school. The AMC sets the standard in the United States for talented high school students of mathematics. The AMC curriculum is both comprehensive and modern. AMC exams are so well designed that some top universities such as MIT now ask students for their AMC scores.

AMC Contests

In order of increasing difficulty, AMC competitions are

The top students on the USAMO are invited to participate in the Math Olympiad Summer Program, where students train for possible inclusion on the U.S. IMO team.


AMC tests mathematical problem solving with arithmetic, algebra, counting, geometry, number theory, and probability, with far more cross-over between the subject areas than in most classrooms. Test vary widely in difficulty and depth of curriculum.
