# Invitation

Dear School Administrator,

Thank you for signing up for the 36th annual American Mathematics Competitions 8 (AMC 8) on November 10-16, 2020. The AMC 8 is a mathematics competition for middle school students that is designed to cultivate the mathematical capabilities of the next generation of problem solvers. In 2019, approximately 150,000 students worldwide will participate in the AMC 8.

Students who take the AMC 8 have the opportunity to develop creative quantitative thinking skills, which better prepares them to succeed in high school math classes. Furthermore, mathematics drives the innovations that shape our society and is useful in a broad range of careers, even those that are not traditionally mathematical, scientific or technical in nature. By offering these competitions the Mathematical Association of America aims to challenge and inspire students to become lifelong learners of mathematics.

After the competition results are compiled, certificates will be presented to the student with the highest scores in each school, as well as to students who score in the top 1% and 5% globally. But the real rewards come from challenging

each student with mathematics that is new, different, and “outside the box.” Competition problems are more difficult than those encountered routinely in math courses, but they are designed to connect to middle school mathematics standards to ensure they are within the reach of students. The measure of success of the competition is not the number of problems solved, but is the level of engagement with mathematics that arises from the intellectual challenge of the problem-solving process.

On behalf of the Mathematical Association of America, I would like to thank you for offering the AMC 8 at your school. I hope your students enjoy the competition and continue to pursue their love of mathematics.

Sincerely yours,

Jennifer Barton

Director, Competitions Operations

### Introduction to American Invitational Mathematics Examination（AIME）

The American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME) is a challenging mathematical competition open for those who excelled on the AMC10 and/or AMC12 to enter the national teams of United States of America Mathematical Olympiad and Junior Mathematical Olympiad (USAMO and USAJMO). Participants of AMC10 and AMC12 with high scores in China can enter AIME, but can not participate in the selection test of national team of AMC. The AIME is a 15-question, 3-hour examination and all answers are integer numbers between 0 to 999. AIME has two versions of the same difficulty. Candidates can choose one to participate. Please wait for the notification of the organizing committee for the specific time.Top-scoring participants in the AMC10/12 are invited to take the AIME. Specific entry details will be notified separately.
