What are these math competitions?

The AMC 8, AMC 10, and AMC 12 are nationwide tests administered by the Mathematical Association of America. Only those with top AMC scores qualify to take the AIME (American International Mathematics Exam). All these tests are collections of carefully-crafted puzzles that gauge both intellectual creativity and grit in the brightest of students. They can distinguish students in the 97th percentile from students in the 99th percentile and higher.

The main competition (the AMC) is given twice in February of each year.

The invitational exam (the AIME) is then given twice in March to those who qualify.

For a gentle introduction to this sort of puzzle, check out my podcast.

How do competitions affect college admission?
They are solicited and recognized by the most selective schools as a primary way to accurately rank students in the top percentiles.  (They are particularly helpful for girls, who are grossly underrepresented in this arena.)
