AIME: The AIME (American Invitational Mathematics Examination) is an intermediate examination between the AMC 10 or AMC 12 and the USAMO. All students who take the AMC 12 and achieve a score of 100 or more out of a possible 150 or are in the top 5% qualify for the AIME. All students who take the AMC 10 and achieve a score of 120 or more out of a possible 150 or are in the top 2.5% also qualify for the AIME.
USAMO: The USAMO (United States of America Mathematics Olympiad) provides a means of identifying and encouraging the most creative secondary mathematics students in the country. It serves to indicate the talent of those who may become leaders in the mathematical sciences of the next generation. The USAMO is part of a worldwide system of national mathematics competitions, a movement in which both educators and research mathematicians are engaged in recognizing and celebrating the imagination and resourcefulness of our youth.
The USAMO is a six question, two day, 9 hour essay/proof examination. About 500 of the top scoring AMC participants (based on a weighted average) are invited to take the USAMO. U. S. citizens and students legally residing in the United States and Canada (with qualifying scores) are eligible to take the USAMO.
