AMC 8-New

The AMC 8 is the most rigorous nationwide mathematics competition at the middle school level, dedicated to the goal of strengthening the mathematical capabilities of our nation’s youth. The AMC 8 provides a great opportunity for middle school students to develop positive attitudes towards analytical thinking and mathematics that can assist in future careers.

It is run by the Mathematical Association of America. A correct answer scores 1 point and an incorrect or blank answer receives neither gain nor penalty. Hence a score of 25 is considered perfect.

National Awards:

  • Certificate of Distinction given to all students who receive a perfect score.
  • Distinguished Honor Roll (top 1%).
  • Honor Roll (top 2-5%).
  • Achievement Roll for 6th grade and below students who score 15 or higher.

Our Uniqueness

We have a long history of close collaboration with the MAA‘s American Mathematics Competitions (AMC), which 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).

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 116 full-length real AMC 10/12 problems sets containing 2,960 problems, as described in the article “116 Full-length Real AMC Problems Sets are a Golden Resource to Our AMC 10/12 Prep Program.” Particularly, we have extracted additional 3,000 brand new problems at the level of the AMC 10/12, from the licensed AMC Database. In addition, we have also collected all AMC8/10/12 and AIME Official Solutions as shown in the article “American Mathematics Competitions (AMC) Materials.” All these materials have formed a golden resource for our students, who are the ultimate beneficiaries.
