The American Mathematics Contest is coming in November! The AMC 10 and AMC 12 are 25-question, 75-minute, multiple choice examinations in high school mathematics designed to promote the development and enhancement of problem-solving skills.
This year, we will offer both administrations of the test: the AMC 10/12A and the AMC 10/12B!  The AMC 10/12A will be given during the school day on Wednesday, November 8. It will be administered during Period 2 and part of Period 4 in the cafeteria that day.  You will miss these classes and will be marked as ACT (school activity) in Powerschool (you will return to Period 4 after the test is complete and all materials have been collected).
The AMC 10/12B will be given after school on Tuesday, November 14. Students will meet in the SWHS cafeteria at 3:00pm, and we should be done by 5:00pm.  You may take either administration or both (for SWHS students), depending on your goals or availability.  If you are interested in participating, you must first join the AMC 10/12 Google Classroom.  The class code is: dfepcmy. In the classroom, you must fill out the Google Forms to reserve a space for the tests you want to take. If you have any questions, please see Mr. Brindisi in Room 265.

For Seniors who want to try for the Seal of Biliteracy in a language that you have learned at home, please make sure you have joined the Google Classroom with Dr. Stoj to receive all of the important information. The Google code is lpyzmu7. Deadline to join is November 17th.
