First administered in 1950, the AMC’s purpose is increasing interest in mathematics and developing problem-solving ability through a series of friendly mathematics competitions for junior (grades 8 and below) and senior (grades 9-12) high school students.
“We are excited to host this mathematics competition for the sixth consecutive year, and welcome this opportunity to provide an academic challenge in a university setting for young mathematicians,” said Dr. Victor Kutsenok of the USF Department of Mathematics.
