jhschool Posted August 6, 2012 Share Posted August 6, 2012 Does anyone have experience having their high schooler participate in the Math Olympiad? The American Mathematics Competitions, run by The Mathematical Association of America, has the following very annoying information on their FAQ. I wonder if any homeschooler has done this succesfully (get approved)? Or unsuccessfully (did they deny you?) I am not sure what they want to research! Also, has your child participated in the Math Olympiad or any of the AMC's math contests? How did you do it? Did you register with your local public school? I am putting their FAQ below: Q. #10. How do we get our organization (home schools, learning centers, testing center, etc.) involved in the AMC contests? A. #10. We prefer to offer our contest to public schools, a few government accredited private schools, colleges and universities. Before allowing other organizations to register for the contests, we would like to do further research about your academic structure. In order for us to do the required research, please provide American Math Competitions with complete information about your organization, including: Organization Name Contact Person Email Address Complete Address, City, State and Zip Accreditation Student Population Website Also include any other information helpful in our research. Please allow 4 to 6 weeks for the research to be complete and a decision or determination to be made. You will be contacted by email.
