Registration

  • Schools register online by the deadline.
  • As many teams of six students as desired may write the contest for a single $50 fee. For larger groups, additional proctors may be desireable.

Running the Event

  • The day before the contest, we provide access to a web site where you can download the contest materials and instructions. The supervisor then photocopies the materials and administers the contest at the school. All questions are graded on an answer only basis.
  • The supervisor may be a teacher, administrator or another adult volunteer.
  • Supervisors may invite students from another school to join them at their own school for this event.
  • Instructions for running the event (subject to change).
  • Watch this CTMC instructional video that describes the logistics and scoring of relays. Please note our updated calculator policy for the Individual and Relay events.

Preparing for the Event

  • Teams must arrange and pay for their own transportation to UWaterloo. Some registered teams make their own arrangements for joint transportation. No overnight accommodations are available on campus. We can recommend nearby hotels.
  • It is not necessary to provide student names or dietary information to secure the spot. Teachers may finalize the line-up up to the date of the contest without notifying us.
  • Do you have more than six students at your school interested in the CTMC? For no extra charge, schools participating At-UWaterloo may also run the CTMC in your school after the At-UWaterloo event for as many different teams as you wish.
