About this event

MATHEMATICA

The Mathematics Contest Centre prepares some of the top mathematics competitions in North America. Over the past 29 years, more than a million students have participated in these contests. You may enter your child in one of the seven different contests: Thales (grade 3), Byron Germain (grade 4), Fibonacci (grade 5), Pythagoras (grade 6), Euler (grade 7), Lagrange (grade 8) and Newton (grade 9).

UNESCO has declared that learning mathematics through problem solving activities is the most efficient way for students to develop the mathematical skills that will prepare them for the challenges of the future. With this in mind, we design contests that will challenge and promote the problem solving skills of all students. To learn more about our educational mission, please go to www.mathematicacentrum.ca.

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 6, 2021.

For each contest, the students scoring over the national average will receive certificates of distinction, while all other students will receive certificates of participation. A medal (or medals) will be awarded to the champion(s) of each school. 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. Furthermore, each student participating in the Pythagoras, Euler and Lagrange contests who gets a perfect score will receive a US$250 merit scholarship to attend the international MathPath camp. As well, both national and provincial honour rolls for the best students and schools will be published online in June.

Contestants are required to miss part of their day school classes to write this contest.

FAQs

Q. My child's day school also offer this contest, who should I register with?

A. You have to register with your school.

Q. I don't yet know whether my child's day school offers this contest or not. Can I register now and ask for a refund later if his/her day school does offer?

A. Unfortunately, the registration fee is non-refundable. However, your child can only write this contest ONCE.

Q. Can I sign my child up for contests that are above their current grade school grade level?

A. Yes. However, your child can only write one of the contests and you cannot sign up for lower grade contests.

Q. Are calculators permitted?

A. Calculators are permitted for Grade 7 Euler, Grade 8 Lagrange and Grade 9 Newton contests only.

Q. Where can I get more information about this contest?

A. Please visit the Mathematica website: http://mathematica.ca/eng/index.htm

Q. How should my child prepare for this contest?

A. Preparatory tests can be found at http://mathematica.ca/eng/preparatory.htm. You can discuss any difficult questions with your Spirit of Math teacher outside of class time.

Q. Who can I contact if I have any questions?

A. Please contact the Campus Principal at your campus if you have questions.
