The Australian Mathematics Competition (AMC) is a competition with 30 engaging mathematics problems that demonstrate the importance and relevance of mathematics in students’ everyday lives and is run by the Australian Maths Trust. The competition challenges students to apply their mathematical problem-solving skills across a range of topics within the Australian Curriculum. The AMC 2021 ran on both Thursday and Friday of Week 3 in Term 3, with 327 students in the Senior School sitting the 75-minute online competition.

All Mathematics students in the Senior school were invited to enter, with those in Advanced and Extended Mathematics classes strongly encouraged to participate. There were three divisions run within the Senior School: Junior (Years 7 to 8), Intermediate (Years 9 to 10) and Senior (Years 11 to 12).
