About AMC Exams
The information below is a quote from AMC website:
"The AMC 8 is a 25 question, 40 minute multiple choice
examination in junior high school (middle school) mathematics
designed to promote the development and enhancement of problem
"The examination provides an opportunity to apply the concepts
taught at the junior high level to problems which not only
range from easy to difficult but also cover a wide range
"A special purpose of the AMC 8 is to demonstrate the
broad range of topics available for the junior high school
mathematics curriculum. "
"Additional purposes of the AMC 8 are to promote excitement,
enthusiasm and positive attitudes towards mathematics and
to stimulate interest in continuing the study of mathematics
beyond the minimum required for high school graduation. Developmentally,
junior high school students are at a point where attitudes
toward school and learning, and perceptions of themselves
as learners of mathematics are solidified. It is important
that they be provided opportunities that foster the development
of positive attitudes towards mathematics and positive perceptions
of themselves as learners of mathematics. The AMC 8 provides
one such opportunity."
"The AMC 10 is a 25 question, 75 minute multiple choice examination in secondary school mathematics containing problems which can be understood and solved with pre-calculus concepts. The main purpose of the AMC 10 is to spur interest in mathematics and to develop talent through the excitement of solving challenging problems in a timed multiple-choice format. The problems range from the very easy to the extremely difficult. Students who participate in the AMC 10 should find that most of the problems are challenging but within their grasp. The contest is intended for everyone from the average student at a typical school who enjoys mathematics to the very best student at the most special school."
