**AMC – American Mathematics Competition – February 3, 2015**

The Mathematics Association of America American Mathematics Competitions (MAA AMC) is dedicated to the goal of strengthening the mathematical capabilities of our nation’s youth. On Thursday, May 11, 1950 the first Mathematical Contest, sponsored by the New York Metropolitan Section of the Mathematics Association of America (MAA), took place. It was given in approximately 238 schools to around 6,000 students in the New York area only. Today, over 350,000 students in roughly 6000 schools participated in the MAA AMC Contests. Of these, 10,000 students qualify each year to participate in the AIME scheduled for late March/early April. From this group approximately 500 students will be invited to take the prestigious USAMO in early May.
