      CEMC Fryer, Galois, Hypatia contests (Grades 9-11) at Central Toronto

      CEMC - Fryer, Galois and Hypatia Contests by University of Waterloo Grades 9-11 - $10 The Fryer, Galois and Hypatia Math Contests are an opportunity for students to write a full-solution contest. They are fun way to develop mathematical problem-solving skills through a written mathematical activity. Questions are based on curriculum common to all Canadian provinces. Rather than testing content, most of the contest problems test logical thinking and mathematical problem solving. Students in Grade 9 or below are eligible to write the Fryer Contest, students in Grade 10 or below are eligible to write the Galois Contest and students in Grade 11 or below are eligible to write the Hypatia Contest. It is a 75-minute contest consisting of 4 questions. Some questions require a full solution and marks are assigned for form and style of presentation. The contest is scheduled on Wednesday, April 10, 2019 in the morning, so the contestants will require to miss part of the school day. Most calculators are permitted in the contest. FAQs My child's day school also offer this contest, who should I register with? You have to register with your school. 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? Unfortunately, the registration fee is non-refundable. However, your child may only write the contest ONCE. Can I sign my child up for contests that are above their current grade school grade level? Yes. However, you cannot sign up for lower grade contests. Are calculators permitted?
