Introduction

In 1950, the first American Mathematics Competition sponsored by the Mathematics Association of America (MAA) took place. Today, the challenge has become the most influential youth math challenge with over 300,000 students participating annually in over 6,000 schools from 30 countries and regions. AMC hosts a series of challenges such as AMC8 held in January for grade 8 or below, AMC10/12 held in November for students at/below grade 10/12. AIME held in March for high scoring AMC10/12 participants for promotion, and USAMO / USAJMO is for excellent AMC10/12 participants of qualification trial of AMC national team.

Overview and Analysis of AMC10 Global Results in 2021 (Fall Semester)

From the overall distribution of the graph, the distribution curve of the scores is positively skewed, the highest point is the mode of the scores. The mode of Version A is 48, which means that the largest number of students answered 8 questions correctly (25 questions in total, disregarding the case of non-response). The mode of Version B is 42, which means that the largest number of students answered 7 questions correctly. Meanwhile, the mean of Version A is 59.40 and the mean of Version B is 56.32, which means that the students' scores are at the middle to lower level and the questions have a certain difficulty.

From the graphical characteristics, all obvious prominent straight bars in the bar graph are multiples of 6, which indicates that students are more inclined to answer questions to get high scores, rather than not answering to get 1.5 points; the standard deviation of Version A is 23.28 points, and the standard deviation of Version B is 24.23 points, which indicates that there is a large gap between students' levels and the paper has a certain selectivity, on the other hand, the standard deviation values of paper A and B are similar, which indicates that there is no significant difference between the difficulty of Version A and Version B.
