AMC10/12 Signups!


The AMC10/12 competitions are coming up!

Email Mr. Seamon (jseamon@williston.com) if you’d like to compete!

The AMC 10 and AMC 12 are both 25-question, 75-minute, multiple choice examinations in high school mathematics designed to promote the development and enhancement of problem-solving skills. The competitions will be given online. You’ll be able to take them from anywhere in the world. Complete info about the events is online here.

Not only are the competitions extremely fun, strong AMC scores can help you stand out during the college application process!

The AMC10A and AMC12A competitions will be given on February 4th.

The AMC10B and AMC12B competitions will be given on February 10th.

The A and B dates are the same difficulty. You can participate in BOTH events, but only at ONE level, either 10 or 12. (The advantage to competing on both dates is that you get two chances to score higher enough to qualify for the next competition, the AIME.)

The AMC 10 is for students in 10th grade and below, and covers the high school curriculum up to 10th grade. Students in grade 10 or below and under 17.5 years of age on the day of the contest can take the AMC 10.

The AMC 12 covers the entire high school curriculum including trigonometry, advanced algebra, and advanced geometry, but excluding calculus. Students in grade 12 or below and under 19.5 years of age on the day of the contest can take the AMC 12.

Lots of AMC example problems and solutions are online here.
