Introduction
In 1950, the first Mathematics Challenge sponsored by the Mathematics Association of America (MAA) took place. Today, the challenge has become the most influential youth math challenge with over 300,000 students participating annually in over 6,000 schools from 30 countries and regions. AMC hosts a series of challenge such as AMC8 held in January for grade 8 or below, AMC10/12 held in November for students at/below grade 10/12. AIME held in March for high scoring AMC10/12 participants for promotion, and USAMO / USAJMO is for excellent AMC10/12 participants of qualification trial of AMC national team.
与Asdan达成合作：
October 2020, The Mathematics Association of America (MAA) officially authorized ASDAN China as an International Group Leader (www.maa.org/math-competitions/international-registrations) to administer the American Mathematics Competitions (AMC8\AMC10\AMC12\AIME) in China mainland.
