## AMC 12 and AIME Contests

The **American Mathematics Competition 12 (AMC 12)** is a 75-minute, 25-question multiple-choice exam. "You will receive 6 points for each correct answer, 1.5 points for each problem left unanswered, and 0 points for each incorrect answer." MoHS sponsors up to 20 students to participate in this contest every year.

The **American Invitational Mathematics Exam (AIME)** is a 3-hour, 15-question exam. Students qualify for the AIME by earning a sufficiently high score on the AMC 12.

The best way to prepare for the AMC 12 and AIME contests is to attempt past problems.

To see the problems for any one particular year, click the folder title (e.g., **2020 AMC 12/AHSME**). To see posts with solutions and discussion, click **View topic** on the far right of each problem.

A possibly useful resource is an eBook called *The Book of Mathematical Formulas & Strategies* by Sohil & Sejal. It was written to be used as a "reference guide for any math competition, and will be useful for competitions like AMC 8, AMC 10/12, MATHCOUNTS, and AIME."
