AIME (American Invitational Mathematics Examination) Prep

 

 

Purpose: Prepare for the American Invitational Mathematics Examination

Schedule: 4 weeks 2/21/15 –3/14/15

Day and Time: Saturdays 5-7pm

Who: Grades 9+

Homework: Prior AIME contests ($20)

 

 

 

The AIME (American Invitational Mathematics Examination) is an intermediate examination between the AMC 10 or AMC 12 and the USAMO. All students who took the AMC 12 and achieved a score of 100 or more out of a possible 150 or were in the top 5% are invited to take the AIME. All students who took the AMC 10 and were in the top 2.5% (In previous years this percentage was 1%) (about 120) also qualify for the AIME.

 

The AIME is a 15 question, 3-hour examination in which each answer is an integer number from 0 to 999. The use of calculators is not allowed.

 

To qualify for the USAMO, scoring a minimum of 8 in AIME is required.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

12/1/10 NEWS:

American Mathematics Competitions announced changes to the AMC10/12 - AIME - USAMO qualification. Two major changes are:

 

1. The cutoff score to advance from the AMC10 to the AIME is still 120, but in the event that fewer than 2.5% of all students score 120 or higher, they will lower the cutoff score so that the top 2.5% of students advance. (In previous years this percentage was 1%.) (Also, no changes for advancement from AMC12 to AIME: it's still 100 or the top 5%.)

 

2. Students can qualify for the USAMO only by taking the AMC12. Students can qualify for the USAJMO only by taking the AMC10. If a student takes both the AMC10 and AMC12 and qualifies for both olympiads, he or she must take the USAMO.

The path to represent USA for IMO (International Math Olympiads):

AMC10/12 (scored top 2.5%/top 5%) -> AIME -> USA(J)MO (500 students) ->

MOSP (~30+30 students) -> IMO (6 students representing USA)

 

The path to the USA IMO

The benefits:

1. It helps getting into the engineering or science fields from Ivy-League colleges or top Universities. MIT asks for the AMC scores in its college application. Stanford accepts high percentage of students who are good with math and science demonstrated in winning math and/or science contests.

2. It improves logical thinking and problem solving skills.

3. It helps advancing in school math track.
