Every year, a number of Germantown Academy students take the American Mathematics Competition (AMC) 10 Exam or the AMC 12 Exam.
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 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.
These competitions were administered around the country on January 30, 2020 and February 5, 2020. The AMC 10 and AMC 12 provides an opportunity for high school students to develop positive attitudes towards analytical thinking and mathematics that can assist in future careers. The AMC 10 and AMC 12 are the first in a series of competitions that eventually lead all the way to the International Mathematical Olympiad.
