Sixteen students took the American Invitational Math Exam March 13, based on their scores on the American Mathematics Competition.

The AIME is a three-hour, 15-question test. If students do well on the AIME, their AIME and AMC scores are used to decide if they qualify for the USA Mathematics Olympiad.

“One thing that was pretty cool about the test was how one of the problems was about something I had just looked up a few nights before, so I was able to solve it without any work,” Jacob Gold ’15 said.
