The contest problem book VII : American Mathematics Competitions 1995-2000 contests by Harold Braun Reiter( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chronicles 275 problems from the American Mathematics Competitions (AMC 12 and AMC 10) for the years 1995 through 2000, including the 50th Anniversary AHSME issued in 1999. Twenty-three additional problems with solutions are included
The contest problem book VIII : American Mathematics Competitions (AMC 10), 2000-2007 by J. Douglas Faires( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the year 2000, the Mathematical Association of America initiated the American Mathematics Competitions 10 (AMC 10) for students up to grade 10. The Contest Problem Book VIII is the first collection of problems from that competition covering the years 2001-2007. J. Douglas Faires and David Wells were the joint directors of the AMC 10 and AMC 12 during that period, and have assembled this book of problems and solutions. There are 350 problems from the first 14 contests included in this collection. A Problem Index at the back of the book classifies the problems into the following major subject areas: Algebra and Arithmetic, Sequences and Series, Triangle Geometry, Circle Geometry, Quadrilateral Geometry, Polygon Geometry, Counting Coordinate Geometry, Solid Geometry, Discrete Probability, Statistics, Number Theory, and Logic. The major subject areas are then broken down into subcategories for ease of reference. The Problems are cross-referenced when they represent several subject areas
Heterogeneity in high math achievement across schools : evidence from the American Mathematics Competition by Glenn Ellison( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper explores differences in the frequency with which students from different schools reach high levels of math achievement. Data from the American Mathematics Competitions is used to produce counts of high-scoring students from more than two thousand public, coeducational, non-magnet, non-charter U.S. high schools. High-achieving students are found to be very far from evenly distributed. There are strong demographic predictors of high achievement. There are also large differences among seemingly similar schools. The unobserved heterogeneity across schools includes a thick tail of schools that produce many more high-achieving students than the average school. Gender-related differences and other breakdowns are also discussed
