Sok Vanny, director of Westview Cambodian and Learning Jungle International School, presided over the event.

Students participated in the AMC based on the international Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) – a NWEA MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) system originally developed and used in the US.

The NWEA MAP system is used by top international schools in some 145 countries worldwide.

The system has the advantages of randomising questions and evaluating students' answers automatically, which, by avoiding human error, provides highly accurate and reliable results.

Not only for high performers, the American Math Competition inspired students of different levels of ability to learn and improve their knowledge and performance in the subject.
