Grade 3-9 - $10


Since 1990, more than 1 000 000 students in Canada and the United States have participated in the Mathematica Contest and it is our hope that your child will participate this year. The contest is held on Wednesday April 22, 2020 at different Spirit of Math Schools campuses. For the contest, students scoring over the national average will receive the certificate of distinction, while all other students will receive the certificate of participation. A medal will be awarded to the champion of the contest. National plaques will be awarded to schools ranked in the first, second, and third places in Canada. Provincial plaques will be awarded to school provincial champions. Students who rank in the first, second, and third places in Canada will receive a medal resembling the Fields medal, the medal awarded to the greatest mathematicians in the world, that will have the student's name inscribed on the back. Provincial champions will receive the same medal. Each student participating in the Pythagoras, Euler and Lagrange who gets a perfect score will receive a US$250 merit scholarship to attend the international MathPath camp. Additionally, both national and provincial honour rolls for the best students and schools will be published online in June 2020. Note: The contestants will require to miss part of the school day on the contest day.


The Thales Contest (grade 3; 45 minutes; 30 questions), the Byron-Germain Contest (grade 4; 45 minutes; 30 questions), the Fibonacci Contest (grade 5; 60 minutes; 40 questions), the Pythagoras Contest (grade 6; 75 minutes; 50 questions), the Euler Contest (grade 7; 75 minutes; 40 questions), the Lagrange Contest (grade 8; 75 minutes; 40 questions) and the Newton Contest (grade 9; 75 minutes; 40 questions) will all be written on April 22, 2020
