Do you have a classroom full of great problem solvers?
One way to find out is through the Australian Mathematics Competition (AMC)
When: Wednesday 3 to Friday 5 August 2022
Cost per student: A$7.50 (Australia and New Zealand)
Entry closing dates: Paper: 1 July / Online: 29 July 2022
To make it easier for teachers to take up the AMC, we have extended the closing date for paper entries to Friday 1 July 2022. All other dates remain the same.
The AMC is an engaging 30-problem competition that demonstrates the importance and relevance of mathematics in students’ everyday lives; it is open to students in years 3 to 12. Australia’s leading educators and academics, with a deep understanding of our national curriculum standards, actively design the unique AMC problems each year.
Teachers coordinate the AMC in schools. Our competition is fully online, with a paper version of the competition also available. We offer ongoing support and resources before the competition and on the day.
Held in term 3, the AMC has five divisions: Middle Primary (years 3–4), Upper Primary (years 5–6), Junior (years 7–8), Intermediate (years 9–10) and Senior (years 11–12). The AMC is available in both printed and online format, it doesn’t matter where your school is located. And, of course, there are special arrangements for visually impaired students and distance education organisations. If you need the paper version of the competition, we encourage you to register your students ASAP to allow for the possible slower delivery of competition papers.
