With more than 15 million entries since 1978 and students in more than 30 countries attempting the same problems each year, school-based maths competitions don’t get much bigger than the Australian Mathematics Competitions. The school-based competition is suitable for students from lower primary to upper secondary.
Entrants in years 3–6 are asked to solve 30 problems in 60 minutes, while those in years 7–12 have 75 minutes to solve more complex problems. The problems get more challenging as the competition progresses, so students of all abilities will be challenged and inspired.
Because the AMC is available in both printed and online format, it doesn’t matter where your school is located. There are special arrangements for visually impaired students and distance education organisations.
