MATH CONTESTS 2016-2017 REGISTRATION

by Byng Math

This school year, students will be registering for any and all contests at one time.  At the registration page, students will indicate which contests they wish to write.  Each contest has a brief “indication” of the group it is appropriate for.  For example, the COMC is a very difficult contest, with the aim of identifying Olympiad contenders.  This contest is appropriate for top grade 11 and 12 students, and extraordinary students below this level.  The CISC, on the other hand, is more accessible, and any grade 9 or 10 student interested is encouraged to sign up.  We are relying on you to make appropriate choices here.  The Math Department may check to see if students have selected appropriate contests based on their grade level and ability.

We offer a few other contests than are shown, but they are either invitational, or restricted to our enriched program.

For a list of our contests, go here: MATH CONTESTS

PASCAL CAYLEY FERMAT REGISTRATION

by Byng Math

The Pascal, Cayley and Fermat contests will be held on Wednesday February 24, 2016 during the first block.  These are one hour contests designed for grade 9 students (Pascal), grade 10 students (Cayley) and grade 11 students (Fermat).  Students should write the contest at their grade level, not their math course level.  In very rare cases, a student can write above their grade level.  If you think that is you, you must personally request this with Mr. Kamin, and have a good reason.  Grade 8’s will not write this contest.  There are several years of practice contests at the uwaterloo CEMC website.

REGISTRATION WILL CLOSE JANUARY 29.  NO LATE REGISTRATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED.

ON THE DAY OF THE CONTEST, YOU MUST BE AT THE DESIGNATED LOCATION (TO BE ANNOUNCED) 15 MINUTES BEFORE THE CONTEST START AT 8:40.

LATES WILL NOT BE WRITING!
