It’s the 40th AMC!


The Australian Mathematics Competition (AMC) is running for the 40th time in 2017!

The AMC is a fun 30-problem competition that shows the relevance of mathematics in students’ everyday lives. Australia’s leading educators and academics, who have a deep understanding of national curriculum standards, design the unique AMC problems each year. Every year, hundreds of thousands of years 3–12 students, from Australia and overseas, participate in the AMC. The competition, which will be held on 27 July this year, is open to all students through their schools.

Perhaps you’re a student who has never participated in the competition. Or you might be the parent of a child who is interested in maths and likes to solve problems. In either case, you should talk to your school about entering the AMC. There is still plenty of time to do so! If you are a teacher and you don’t know your school code and password for our competitions and programs, please contact us.

Get your entries in for the AMC as early as possible in order to avoid disappointment via http://amt.edfinity.com/

Closing dates

  • Paper version: 10 July (30 June for overseas schools)
  • Online version: 20 July

Getting Prepared?

If you want to get ready for any of our competitions or to work on your problem solving skills, we have a series of resources to help.

Resources

GetSet AMC and GetSetCAT are self-paced online programs designed to help every student prepare effectively for the AMC. There’s a collection of problem sets and a mock contest for each division, and students receive a performance report with suggested areas of improvement.

The 2016 Solutions and 2015 Solutions books list all the questions and solutions for all the divisions of the AMC for a single year, presented in question order.

For Primary Students

Australian Mathematics Competition Primary Bk 2 (2009–2013) This book contains all the questions and solutions from the Middle and Upper Primary papers between 2009 and 2013. The questions are presented in the same order as in the real paper, which means you’ll be able to get some real practice done.

For Secondary Students

Australian Mathematics Competition Bk 5 (2006–2012). This is our most recent compilation of all questions and solutions for the secondary divisions (Junior, Intermediate and Senior) of the AMC. It is organised by topic and the questions get progressively more difficult. The source (year, division) for each question is indicated. With so many questions, you can use it all through high school.

For Advanced Students

Problem Solving via the AMC focuses on particular techniques for solving types of problems that students have often found difficult in the AMC (geometry, rates of change, Diophantine equations and counting techniques). The techniques are developed and explained through sample problems, then further problems are set, and solutions provided.
