Summer is the golden time to prepare for the American Mathematics Competitions!
All problems from past AMC exams form our “big data” system. We have used data mining and predictive analytics to examine the types and the frequencies of questions in all these materials, and then completely “decoded” the AMC. For all questions on the recent AMC contests, we can find their “ancestors” and “roots” from the old AMC problems. Therefore, the best way to prepare for the contest is to practice by solving old AMC problems.

You can find some problems on the AMC and their solutions on the internet. However, it is imperative to know that these solutions are not reliable, as they are not written by professionals. Most of the answers found on the internet are written by students, and lack expert (peer) review. They contain many mistakes and may be incomplete. Thus, they are not a good source for learning the strategies and shortcuts for solving AMC problems.
We provide all AMC Problems and Solutions. Each solution was developed by 20 famous mathematicians. At least one solution was provided for each problem and all problems were solved without the use of a calculator. When more than one solution was provided, this was done to demonstrate an important contrast in approaches, e.g., algebraic vs geometric, elementary vs advanced, computational vs conceptual, explicit vs implicit, analytic vs discrete.
The MAA‘s American Mathematics Competitions (AMC) are dedicated to strengthening the mathematical capabilities of our nation’s youth, and are the first of a series of competitions in high school mathematics that determine the United States team for the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO). There are many math competitions in the United States. Of those, only AMC → AIME → USAMO sequence would take you to the IMO (International Math Olympiad), the highest level math competition for high school students in the world. We are only one in the Washington DC metropolitan area to offer elementary, middle, and high-school level competition math courses. Our students have received top scores and awards at prestigious national and math competitions. We have collected all AMC8/10/12 Problems and Solutions as shown below, which have formed our “big data” system, a golden resource for our students, who are the ultimate beneficiaries.
Exercise your mind daily with a problem from the AMC-8, AMC-10, or AMC-12.
