Do you have a classroom full of great problem solvers? One way to find out is through the Australian Mathematics Competition (AMC)
AMC will be held on Thursday 30 July 2020
Australian entries close: 16 July (paper), 23 July (online)
International entries close: 25 June (paper), 23 July (online)
Cost: $6.50 (Aust & NZ)
School-based maths competitions don’t get much bigger than this—with more than 15 million entries since 1978 and students in more than 30 countries attempting the same problems each year.
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.
The AMC is run by teachers in schools. We offer ongoing support and resources prior to and on the day of the competition.
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.
We are a not-for-profit entity and we make our entry fees consistent with our status. Entries fees cost $6.50 AUD per student including GST in Australia. The fee varies from time-to-time between countries depending on costs such as postage and freight.
We have special arrangements for distance education organisations. Please contact us to find out how your country participates in the AMC.
*Singapore will hold their AMC Ceremony 14 January 2020*
