Greetings from Prof. David Calvis, Mathematics Coordinator at Baldwin-Wallace College. I am writing
to announce that Baldwin-Wallace will be offering the AMC 10 and AMC 12 Contests of the
American Mathematics Competition on the “B” date of Wednesday February 23, 2011. You and
your talented mathematics students are invited here on that morning to compete in the appropriate
The AMC Contests are perhaps the foremost high-school mathematics competitions in the country.
Preparing for, and competing in, these contests will expose the participants to a new level of
mathematical challenge, and inspire other students at your school to mathematical excellence. For the
highest scorers, the AMC 10/12 are also the first step on the path toward the famous Mathematical
Please visit the following web site for details about this event:
Here you will find instructions on how to participate, as well as a tentative schedule for the morning.
From the above page you can also link to the American Mathematics Competition web site, which has
extensive information on every aspect of the Contests. Note that we can accommodate a maximum of
50 students, on a first come-first served basis, and that we would need notification of your intent to
participate no later than December 1, 2010. Please note that students can participate here at B-W even if

We hope that your school will be represented at this offering of the AMC Contests. Please contact me if
I can be of any assistance. Sincerely,
Prof. David Calvis
