AMC Competition Updates

In Response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

Dear Parents, Teachers, Students and all that support our Competitions Program,

After much deliberation and discussions with teachers, parents and our MAA team, we have decided to put an indefinite hold on all aspects of the AMC program:

  • This will include postponing until further notice the AIME II, USA(J)MO, and the scheduled grading session in Boston.
  • This will also mean, unfortunately, that we will not hold the on-site summer Mathematical Olympiad Program (MOP) at Carnegie Mellon University in June.
  • We will make decisions in the coming weeks on whether or not we’ll be able to host the Mathematical Olympiad Awards Ceremony (MOAC) in June, as well as provide updates on the status of the IMO in St. Petersburg, Russia.

As the uncertainty of the worldwide pandemic continues to unfold, we are working with our teams to determine when and how to resume the program. This will take some time to work through, so we appreciate your patience during this time.

We have received all of your calls, emails, and messages of support and are so thankful for such an engaged community. We understand the importance of this program and how hard the students have worked to study and prepare.

We ask for your patience as we work through options during this worldwide pandemic. The impact it is having on our school’s students and teachers is unprecedented. Our hope is that postponing our competitions program supports the well-being of our students and our country during this time. We will provide an update as to the status of the 2019-2020 competition program in the coming weeks.

Above all, I hope that all students and teachers remain safe, and continue to follow the guidance from health-care professionals within your community and at the state and federal levels.

 

Sincerely,

Jennifer S. Barton
Director, Competition Operations

2020 AIME I Problems and Answers

The 2020 AIME I was held on March 11, 2020. 2,458 students from US and Canadian schools participated in this contest.

logoThe AIME provides the exceptional students who are invited to take it with yet another opportunity to challenge their mathematical abilities. Like all examinations, it is a means towards furthering mathematical development and interest. The real value of the examination is in the learning that can come from the preparation beforehand and from further thought and discussion of the solutions.

The 2020 AIME I Problems and Answers have been posted below.

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 math competitions.

Great Benefits of Math Competitions

In an increasingly competitive college application pool, the process of mastering math skills through our courses and participating in the American Math Competitions will help students strengthen and diversify their extracurricular activities. These contests can motivate students’ interest and passion in math, and they can discover their talent through solving challenging problems different from those in the school classes. Many top colleges also request AMC scores as part of the college application process. Both MIT and Caltech have entry blanks on their official admission application forms for the applicant to enter their best AMC and AIME scores. Ivy League Colleges and Stanford ask for to the AMC and AIME scores in their Supplement to the Common Application Forms. Your children deserve the chance to list these scores on their applications! Good AMC scores will greatly enhance admission opportunities for students to elite colleges.
