The Department of Mathematics hosts the American Competition Exams (AMC). The AMC 8 takes place in November and is typically taken by children in grades 6-8. The AMC 10/12 takes place in February. There are two exams: the AMC 10 for high school students in grades 10 and below and the AMC 12 for students in grades 11 and 12. The reward if you do well is the invitation to take another exam, the AIME!
