American Invitational Mathematics Exam (AIME)

The Chesapeake Math Program is pleased to announce our high performers who qualified for the American Invitational Mathematics Exam (AIME) sponsored by the Mathematical Association of America. The AIME is an invitation-only contest for students who did exceptionally well on the American Math Competitions for high school students.

In the 2015 academic year, over 186,000 students participated in the American Math Competitions for twelfth grade (AMC-12) and tenth grade (AMC-10) combined, across two administrations. The top 2.5% AMC-10 scorers and top 5% AMC-12 scorers were invited to the American Invitational Math Exam (AIME I and II).

All students who qualified for the AIME received National Honors on the American Math Competition. Those in the top 1% placed on the National Distinguished Honors Roll.

The AIME is a 3-hour test that serves as one of the steps in determining the six students who comprise the USA team to the International Mathematical Olympiad.

AMC-10 qualifiers for the AIME

The following Chesapeake students qualified for the AIME through the AMC 10 and consideration for the junior USAMO.

We had an unusually large number of students this year qualifying through both the AMC-12 and the AMC-10. A student of any age can take the AMC 12 exam as long as they are in 12th grade or below. For that reason, we had many younger students do the qualifiers for both the AMC-12 and AMC-10, and that is why some names appear in both lists.
