American Invitational Mathematics Examination

     The American Invitational Mathematics Examination began

in March 1983 to "provide additional recognition and challenge 

to the best mathematics students, at most a few thousand 

of them, in the U.S.A. and Canada."  The exam is given by 

invitation only - a student must be on the Student Honor Roll

of the A.H.S.M.E. to be invited to participate.  The exam 

consists of 15 extremely difficult problems and a time limit 

of three hours.

     The A.I.M.E. is the second in the pyramid of three

mathematics examinations given by the Committee on the 

American Mathematics Competitions that lead to the 

designation of Winners of the USA Mathematical Olympiad and 

the selection of an International Mathematical Olympiad team.  

The first test is the A.H.S.M.E.  Students scoring 100 or 

more are then invited to take the A.I.M.E.  Students who do 

well on both of these examinations are then invited to 

participate in the USA Mathematics Olympiad.  Only 150 

students in the country are invited to participate in the 

U.S.A.M.O.   Six students are then selected to the USA Math

Olympiad Team.  They train in the summer for the 

International Math Olympiad.
