Sign up for AMC10B or AMC12B at Siena College!

Thanks to Siena College Math Department and especially to Professor Mohammad Javaheri (a silver medalist at the 1995 International Math Olympiad) for sponsoring this exciting math contest for high school students in the Capital District.  The AMC10/12 is the first in a series of challenging "extreme math problem solving" events that ultimately leads to selection to the US team for the International Math Olympiad!  It also opens many other doors as well, including the American Invitational Math Exam, the USA Math Olympiad and USA Junior Math Olympiad.  If you are a girl, it is also the entry point to the Math Prize for Girls at MIT next September!

 We especially encourage participation from students who enjoy math challenges but who have never even heard of this contest before. High school students interested in joining Albany Area Math Circle sessions to help prepare you to have an enjoyable extreme math experience should contact AAMC advisor Mary O'Keeffe at for more information about how to prepare. Please use the form below to sign up to take the contest at Siena on February 20.
