Students in Years 10 and 11 took the AMC 10, whilst AMC 12 was taken by students in Years 12 and 13.
A total of 45 students took part in the competitions, with each student volunteering to participate, including one from Year 9!
The AMC compliments our entry to the UK Mathematical Challenges which is given as a compulsory competition to many of our students. The American competition is a little different from the UK versions as it relies on knowledge pertaining to the American system and the language used can also be a challenge in itself at times! However, many of our students relish these challenges and have worked hard in the run up to the competition today. We hope to have the results back in about 3-4 weeks’ time.
Why not have a go at one of the questions from these challenges and see how you do? Send your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org?subject=AMC">Mr Brown, Head of Mathematics, and he’ll let you know how you got on!
