The American Mathematics Competitions (AMC) consist of a series of increasingly difficult tests — the AMC 8, the AMC 10/12, the AIME, and the USA(J)MO — for students from middle school and high school designed to challenge bright students beyond their normal mathematical curriculum and build critical thinking and problem solving skills that will help them throughout their academic career and their lives. The AMC 10 — a 25-question multiple choice contest — serves as most students’ first exposure to high school-level math contests.
Good AMC scores will also enhance admission opportunities for students to elite colleges.

Nelson is a junior at Monta Vista High School who has been involved in math contests since elementary school. He was a perfect scorer on the MOEMS contest in fifth grade and a two-year member of Kennedy Middle School’s MathCounts team, helping the team place second in the State division in eighth grade. He has consistently scored high scores on the AMC contest series, having first qualified for AIME in seventh grade and USAJMO in ninth grade. He has been teaching math to elementary and middle school students for more than three years, having served as a teaching assistant for an immensely popular MOEMS class at Quinlan Community Center in addition to teaching and tutoring competition math at SpringLight. In addition to his interests in math and teaching, Nelson enjoys reading, acting, and writing.
Students should be comfortable with regular school math up to and including Algebra I and Geometry. No previous contest experience is necessary.
