Thank you — we are grateful to all of the teachers and administrators who help their students grow and learn with our mathematics and computer science contests.
Once you have ordered CSIMC, PCF, FGH, Euclid, or Gauss Contests for your students, you will receive detailed contest instructions in the mail or through our Contest Supervisor Portal in the weeks before the contest. To help you prepare before these contest materials arrive, we’ve created a broad overview of the steps involved in contest supervision.
In the weeks leading up to the official contest date, you will be sent (by mail or electronically) contest papers, forms, and detailed contest instructions. The contest instructions will be specific to the contests you have ordered and will include everything you need to know to supervise the contest, including when to start the contest, time limit, how to supervise the contest, how to submit contest papers or results, and more.
For all but the Gauss Contests, ensure that students carefully fill out the Student Information Forms.
If necessary, follow the instructions included in your contest materials to accommodate a larger than expected number of students wishing to write the contest. Please note that extra fees may apply.
Distribute the contest materials and encourage students to read the instructions carefully.
Put forth your best effort to maintain the integrity of the contest. For example, try to prevent communication between participants and ensure students work individually.
For the Gauss Contests:
For all other contests written on paper:
Once you have received contest results from the CEMC (for all but the Gauss Contests, which are marked by teachers), it’s time to celebrate your students’ efforts!
