A total of 98 upper school students participated in the American Math Competition  Feb. 2. Two tests were administered, the AMC 10 and AMC 12.

Students are given 25 multiple choice questions to complete in 75 minutes, with the AMC 10 focusing more on concepts in algebra and geometry and the AMC 12 focusing on concepts in pre-calculus.

Every correct answer receives six points. Every incorrect answer receives zero points and every answer left blank receives 1.5 points. Students who score over 100 points for the AMC 12 or over 120 points on the AMC 10 will qualify for following math competitions.
