The AMC 8 is for middle school students that are interested in developing a proficiency for mathematics and analytical thinking. The journey that begins with the AMC 8 can lead to further mathematics competitions (such as the AMC 10 and 12), an improved college application, or assistance in future careers. Students apply the skills they already learn in middle school math class to unique challenges that test their problem solving and critical reasoning.

The material covered on the AMC 8 should be included in a typical middle school mathematics curriculum. Possible topics include (but are not limited to): counting and probability, estimation, proportional reasoning, elementary geometry including the Pythagorean Theorem, spatial visualization, everyday applications, and reading and interpreting graphs and tables. Some of the more challenging questions may involve linear or quadratic functions and equations, coordinate geometry, and other topics traditionally covered in a beginning algebra course.

The AMC 10 is for students in the first half of high school that are interested in developing a proficiency for mathematics and potentially competing in the AIME (American Invitational Mathematics Examination) for a spot on the US Math Olympiad Team. Even students who don’t make it to the AIME find that the AMC 10 is a great opportunity for them to further their interest in mathematics, tackle advanced problems, and bolster their college application.

The material covered on the AMC 10 should be included in a typical grade 9 and grade 10 mathematics curriculum. Possible topics include (but are not limited to): elementary algebra, basic geometry knowledge, the Pythagorean Theorem, area and volume formulas, elementary number theory, and elementary probability.

What is NOT included in the AMC 10 is: trigonometry, advanced algebra, and advanced geometry. Calculus is never included on the AMC 10 or 12.

The AMC 12 is for high school students that are interested in developing a proficiency for mathematics and potentially competing in the AIME (American Invitational Mathematics Examination) for a spot on the US Math Olympiad Team. Even students who don’t make it to the AIME find that the AMC 12 is a great opportunity for them to further their interest in mathematics, tackle advanced problems, and bolster their college application. The AMC 12 is particularly useful for supporting applications to STEM-focused programs at undergraduate universities.

The material covered on the AMC 10 should be included in a high school mathematics curriculum through grade 12. Possible topics include (but are not limited to): elementary algebra, basic geometry knowledge, the Pythagorean Theorem, area and volume formulas, elementary number theory, elementary probability, trigonometry, advanced algebra, and advanced geometry. Calculus is never included on the AMC 10 or 12.
