Get your entries in for the Australian Mathematics Competition

Don’t panic, you still have time to register your students for the Australian Mathematics Competition (AMC), which is on 28 July 2016. The AMC is a fun 30-problem competition which 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. Last year students of all levels of ability from year 3 to 12 and from about 3,500 schools participated.

For the first time, we are offering the AMC to schools online. The online version has the same questions as the paper version. The 2016 Online AMC will be open for a limited time period to accommodate students in different time zones—about 36 hours beginning on 28 July. Schools that cannot run the online competition within the specified time should enter their students into the paper version of the competition instead.

Closing dates

  • Paper version: 13 July (16 June for overseas schools)
  • Online version: 21 July
