American Mathematics Contests 10B and 12B

The AMC 10 and 12 are 25-question, 75-minute multiple-choice exams sponsored by the Mathematical Association of America (MAA). Their main purpose is to spur interest in mathematics and to develop talent through the excitement of solving challenging problems.


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.


Two different versions of the contest are given on separate dates in February. Both the A and the B versions of the AMC 10 and the AMC 12 have the same number of questions, the same scoring, and the same rules for administration. The only differences are the competition dates and that each version has a distinct set of questions. The two exams are designed to be equal in difficulty and distribution of topics.


The AMC 10B and 12B contests will be administered at Cornell in spring 2017.  Please use this flier if you'd like to help us advertise.
