Archive for December, 2012


imagesThis next meeting will be our last before the holiday break at UTD and the end of the Fall semester.  Students preparing for the 2013 AMC 10 and 12 will not want to miss this session when Dr. Andreescu share some of his favorite problems and approaches for solving them.

All students should make a serious effort to register and prepare for the AMC 10 or 12 exam.  There is no limitation on how young a student can participate and no restriction on how many years you take the exam until you reach 10th and 12th grades respectively.  The AMC results are requested by many elite colleges to differentiate among the many applications they see with 800 SAT scores.

Here is some additional information about this year’s AMC 12:

The AMC 12 is a 25 question, 75 minute multiple choice examination in secondary school mathematics containing problems which can be understood and solved with pre-calculus concepts. Calculators are not allowed starting in 2008. For the 2012-2013 school year there will be two dates on which the contest may be taken: AMC 12A on Tuesday, February 5, 2013 , and AMC 12B on Wednesday, February 20, 2013 .

Congratulations to all of the students who earned perfect scores (25/25) on the 2012 AMC 8.  It was good to see that many of the perfect scores were earned by Texas students and that a good number of those are attendees of the Metroplex Math Circle.
