REGISTRATION is ON for interested participants for the Australia Mathematics Competition (AMC) 2007 for the Westpac Awards. The contest will be held on Wednesday, July 25, 2007 in different MTG training Centers across the country.

The number of entrants in recent years has reached to more than 500,000 and it has become the largest single event on the international mathematics correspondence contest, allowing students to attempt the same tasks, on the same day in about 40 countries worldwide.

The aims of the Competition are three-fold:
1. To highlight the importance of mathematics as a curriculum subject
2. To give students an opportunity to discover talent in mathematics
3. To provide resources for the classroom and general discussion

Scope of the AMC
There is a Middle Primary Paper (Grades 3 and 4), Upper Primary Paper (Grades 5 and 6), a Junior Paper (1st and 2nd Years HS Levels), an Intermediate Paper (3rd and 4th Year HS Levels) and a Senior Paper (1st and 2nd Year College Levels).

AMC Scoring
Students are asked to solve thirty 30 problems in all. Problems 1 to 25 are of multiple choice type of test. While the last 5 challenging questions at the end of the paper in which the students are required to answer an integer between 0 and 999, a number which students can enter on the mark sense sheets for optical reading. Effective this year Questions 26 to 30 will be worth 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 points respectively, reflecting their greater Challenge. The effect of this change, which increases the maximum possible score from 120 to 135, will be to spread the scores of the potential medalists, and will mainly be noticed by such students.
