Fryer, Galois and Hypatia Mathematics Contests


FGH Certificates
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.

Audience

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.
Students in Grade 11 or below are eligible to write the Hypatia Contest.

  • 75 minutes
  • 40 total marks
  • any calculator permitted
The contests are written in schools and supervised by teachers.

Mathematical Content

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.

Registration Information

Schools register online. The deadline is March 20, 2015. View fees.
Registrations are also accepted by fax or e-mail.

Schools that have not registered for previous contests are encouraged to participate.

Contest Preparation

We recommend that students spend some time preparing for our contests by trying to solve problems. Many teachers use past contests in the classroom.

Results and Recognition

The results booklet and averages and cutoffs are online.
Teachers can access their students' results and generate certificates.

We recognize top-performing students and schools.
