Contests

We plan to offer our full set of contests in 2020/2021. We recognize that the ways in which contests are written might vary greatly from school to school. We want to enable as much participation as possible, because this is, for us, the most important goal of our contests. Further details and updates are linked below.

We are able to accommodate students writing in their schools or as remote learners. We encourage you to contact your school and register for our contests through them. If your school is not participating we are allowing for a more flexible acceptance of registration from Home Schools and individuals. Please note that at this point, those that register this way rather than through a traditional day school will not be able to order the 2020/2021 Euclid or CCC. Currently, these contests can only be registered for and written through schools (we will revisit this decision in early 2021). Please email us if you have any further questions.

Online Resources for Learning at Home

Please be reminded of the following CEMC resources, all of which are free:

  1. Our comprehensive courseware covers most mathematics topics covered curricula from Grade 7 to Grade 12. Each course includes online teaching, interactive components, and lots of opportunity for practice. This is a great way for students who are not in class to continue learning. The Grade 9/10/11 Courseware includes curriculum maps that explicitly show how the lessons connect to the various Canadian provincial curricula.
  2. A new CEMC at Home resource at each of four levels from Grade 4 to 12 was developed to support teachers, students and parents.
  3. Problem of the Week and Problem of the Month offer students the chance to do some problem solving and keep sharp.
  4. CS Circles is an excellent resource for students to learn the basics of programming.
  5. In addition to these resources, the CEMC offers a wide range of other online resources supporting Grade 4 to Grade 12.
