Offered by the Mathematical Association of America, the AMC 8 (American Mathematics Competition 8) is a 25-question, 40-minute, multiple choice examination in middle school mathematics designed to promote the development and enhancement of problem-solving skills.
The examination provides an opportunity to apply the concepts taught at the junior high level to problems which not only range from easy to difficult but also cover a wide range of applications. Many problems are designed to challenge students and to offer problem solving experiences beyond those provided in most junior high school mathematics classes.
Students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades or working at a middle school level are encouraged to participate in the AMC 8. All students in grade 8 or below are eligible to participate as long as they are under 14.5 years of age on the day of the contest.
