Australian Mathematics Competition
One of the world’s largest school-based mathematics competitions with more than 14 million entries since 1978
About the Australian Mathematics Competition
The Australian Mathematics Competition (AMC) was introduced in Australia in 1978 as the first Australia-wide mathematics competition for students. It has become the largest single event on the Australian education calendar, allowing students to attempt the same tasks on the same day in over 30 countries around the globe.
Running since 1978, the AMC is for students of all standards. Students are asked to solve 30 problems in 60 minutes (Years 3–6) or 75 minutes (Years 7–12). The problems are designed to test mathematical thinking rather than focus on calculations themselves, thus such questions are designed so that they can be answered just as quickly without a calculator as with one. The problems get more difficult through the competition, so that at the end they are challenging to the most gifted students. Students of all standards will make progress through the problems, and also be challenged along the way.
PISCT had 56 candidates from grades 3 to 12 registered to attend this well-known competition. Students first given personal information forms to fill and then started the math competition at 8:30.
We are looking forward to hearing good news about our students results.
