Mathematical Association of America to hold American Math Competition (AMC) for school students across the world, including India
• Competitions to be held in Nov 2017 and Feb 2018
• AMC a series of exams culminating in International Mathematical Olympiad
New Delhi, Aug…: Transitions Lab Preparatory School brings to you the best of world MATH
Competition. It is our endeavor to help the Indian students get exposure to the world of Maths in a way that is done outside India enabling them to flag off their preparation for higher studies in prestigious Universities across the world.The Mathematical Association of America (MAA) will hold the American Math Competition(AMC) for middle and high school students across major centres of the world, including India, during November 2017-February 2018, to test their math-solving competencies and help them develop the analytical skills needed for future careers in an innovative society. The AMC examinations, considered as the world’s leading mathematics competition for students ranging from grade 8 to 12, are a series of tests and curriculum materials that culminate with the International Mathematical Olym-
piad (IMO).Students who take the AMC competitions have the opportunity to develop creative quantitative thinking and problem-solving skills, which prepare them to succeed in high school math classes. The contest dates are November 14, 2017 for AMC 8; February 7,
2018 for AMC 10 and 12A; and February 15, 2018 for AMC 10 and 12B. The cost of participation is Rs 750 plus taxes. Those students, who perform exceptionally well in the AMC 10/12, can continue to participate in the AMC contests. 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, although the two examinations are designed to be equal in difficulty and distribution of topics. Transitions Lab Preparatory School is an exclusive international partner of the MAA to conduct AMC exams throughout India. It is our desire to bring the best in the world of Maths to the students of India enabling them to become true global citizens in terms of developing their problem solving skills.It provides students with AMC Resources which consist of material to help with mathematical problem solving and to prepare for the AMC competitions. Limited scholarships are available for top math performers recommended by school math teachers. Students can enroll with Transitions Lab Preparatory School for the AMC 8, 10 and 12 contests on email firstname.lastname@example.org. Over 350,000 students participate in this competition annually in over 6,000 schools worldwide. Last year more than 1,500 students participated in the contest from different schools in India. Twelve Indian students got invitation to participate in AIME(American Invitational Mathematics Examination) contest, which is the first in this series. The MAA, the largest professional society with a focus on undergraduate mathematics education, has a mission “to advance the mathematical sciences, especially at the collegiate level.” The AMC programme is intended to strengthen the mathematical capabilities of the next generation of problem solvers. The AMC 8 is a multiple choice examination in middle school mathematics designed to promote the development of problem-solving skills. The AMC 10 is for students in 10th grade and below, and those under 17.5 years of age on the day of the contest can take this test. Students in grade 12 or below and under 19.5 years of age on the day of the contest, can take the AMC12.
OTHER HONORS PROGRAMME EXAM
American Scholastic Math Association (ASMA) is a first examination to start the journey of your Honors Program. The contest has many interesting questions that increase the students thinking power. Students also sharpen their skills to answer math section of standardized tests like The ACT and the SAT. Every year students from around 40 countries participate in these contests. Every participant receives a participatory certificate and students with the highest cumulative score receive the highest-scoring student certificate. CEMC – University of Waterloo is Canada’s largest and most recognized organization for promoting and creating activities in mathematics and computer science. Their math contests for grades IX to XII are contests like Pascal, Cayley, and Fermat which have multiple-choice questions and Fryer, Galois, Euclid and Hypatia where questions are answered showing full working. They also have a Physics and Chemistry contests called Sir Isaac Newton (SIN) and Avogadro and a
computing challenge called Beaver Challenge. There are several other exams and competitions to consider and our students participate, like Biology Olympiad (Toronto), Essay competitions for students interested History,English and Psychology.
