The Gauss Contests are an opportunity for students to have fun and to develop their mathematical problem solving ability.
All students in Grades 7 and 8 and interested students from lower grades.
Written in May. See details for current year.
Questions are based on curriculum common to all Canadian provinces.
Schools that have not registered for previous contests are encouraged to participate, and can start by filling out a New School Application form.
We recommend that students spend some time preparing for our contests by trying to solve problems. Many teachers use past contests in the classroom and the CEMC problem set generator allows anyone to create random sets of problems with the option to customize the topics covered.
We emphasize participation but also recognize top-performing students.
