Do you have a classroom full of great problem solvers? One way to find out is through the Australian Mathematics Competition (AMC)

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 school-based competition is suitable for students from lower primary to upper secondary. Entrants in years 3–6 are asked to solve 30 problems in 60 minutes, while those in years 7–12 have 75 minutes to solve more complex problems.

The problems get more challenging as the competition progresses, so students of all abilities will be challenged and inspired.

And because 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.

In 2019 we are offering an Australian Kangourou as an optional multiple-choice warm-up competition for schools who will be running the AMC later in the year. Time allowed: 60 minutes (primary), 75 minutes (secondary). Available in online version only and in a bundle price with the AMC, see our calendar entry for prices.

The finer details including early sitting, students with visual impairment, and home-schooled students.

Our competitions and programs empower students to become better problem solvers in school, so they can be creative solution finders in life.

Check out our huge range of maths and problem-solving resources for teachers, parents and students.

Enter the Kangourou on 21 March as a warm-up competition for the AMC in August.
