AMC History

In 1950, the first Mathematical Contest, sponsored by the New York Metropolitan Section of the Mathematical Association of America (MAA), took place. It was given in approximately 200 schools to around 6,000 students in the New York area only. Today, the competition has grown to over 300,000 students participating annually, in over 4,000 schools.

International Students

International students and US students studying abroad participate in AMC competitions through one of Math Association of America International Group Leaders (IGLs).  Students must register for the competitions through the IGL in the country they reside.
