The examination provides an opportunity to apply the concepts taught at the junior high level to problems which not only range from easy to difficult but also cover a wide range of applications. Many problems are designed to challenge students and to offer problem solving experiences beyond those provided in most junior high school mathematics classes.
Check out our Contest Problem Book series for problems and solutions from past American Mathematics Contests.
We encourage all students in grades 6, 7 and 8 to participate in the AMC 8. For more information about the competitions and how your school can get involved, visit AMC's website.
