USA
Middle School
High School
The United States is home to many regional and national math contests for high school students. The largest and most prestigious are those run by the American Mathematics Competitions (AMC), which include the following:
- American Mathematics Contest 8 (AMC->8) (formerly AJHSME - American Junior High School Mathematics Examination)
- American Mathematics Contest 10/12 (AMC->10 and AMC->12) (formerly AHSME - American High School Mathematics Examination)
- American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME)
- United States of America Mathematical Olympiad (USAMO)
The AMC 8, AMC 10, and AMC 12 are open to students in or below grades 8, 10, and 12, respectively, and collectively receive more than 400,000 participants each year. The highest scorers on the AMC 10 and AMC 12 are invited to take the AIME, and the highest scorers on the AIME are invited to take the USAMO. The representatives of the United States in the IMO (International Mathematical Olympiad) are selected from the USAMO winners.
Other American math contests include USAMTS (United States of America Mathematical Talent Search), the team-based competition ARML (American Regions Math League National Competition), the team-based competition that spawned ARML, NYSML (New York State Mathematics League) and The Mandelbrot Competition for high schoolers, and the Putnam Competition for undergraduates (the Putnam is also open to Canadian undergraduates).
