Mathematics Competition

Staples High School students are invited to take the 2020 American Mathematics Competition (AMC) 10/12 program sponsored by the Mathematical Association of America (MAA). The exam is a 25-question, 75-minute, multiple choice examination in high school mathematics designed to promote the development and enhancement of problem-solving skills.

The competition will take place on Thursday, January 30, 2020 promptly at 7:30am (B Connections day, periods 2 & 3). Awards are given to high scoring students in each school. This exam is the first in a series of competitions that eventually lead all the way to the prestigious Mathematical Olympiad in May.

Interested students should come to room 2055 (Assessment Center, Ms. Fucci) to pre-fill out the answer key (with name, address, etc.) prior to the exam day.  Come by anytime from 7:15 am to 2:15pm.

In the event of school closure due to inclement weather on January 30th, the make-up will be Wednesday, February 5, 2020.
