Hi Grade Seven and Grade Eight!

This year, the grade 7 and 8 students will participate again in the Waterloo Mathematics Gauss Contest.

“The CEMC develops and administers many internationally recognized contests to help to inspire the next generation of students to develop an interest in and love for mathematics and computer science.” ~Centre for Education in Mathematics and Computing, Waterloo University

The OJCS will write the contest on Tuesday, May 14th during the first two periods. The contest is 60 minutes in length and calculators are allowed.

We have begun, and will continue to go over contests from previous years’ to become familiar with the wording of questions and the marking scheme.

The Contest is a fun way to measure your own growth and abilities. The mark (your score) does not become of your final math mark. It is just one point of your own growth in your own mathematical learning continuum.
