Because of rapidly changing world events, we have made the following decisions regarding CEMC contests and events:
- The Euclid and Fryer/Galois/Hypatia Contests will not be written on their originally scheduled dates in April. We hope to be able to run these on new dates in May, but will make this decision in the first half of April. The Euclid Contest will not be a factor in this year’s admissions and scholarship decisions.
- We hope that the Gauss Contests will run as planned in May. We will re-assess this situation in the first half of April.
- The Canadian Team Mathematics Contest (CTMC) scheduled to be held at the University of Waterloo in early April is cancelled. We hope that schools that have registered to participate “in school” will still be able to do that at some point between April and June.
- Math Circles, Think About Math! Waterloo and Toronto and SPARCS are cancelled.
- The CEMC Visits Schools program is currently not accepting new requests for school visits to take place during the remaining months of the 2019/2020 school year. We will reassess this decision in the first half of April.
The next few weeks will be difficult for many people. Please stay safe and healthy. While many students are not in school, please be reminded of the following CEMC resources, all of which are free:
- Our comprehensive courseware covers most mathematics topics covered curricula from Grade 7 to Grade 12. Each course includes online teaching, interactive components, and lots of opportunity for practice. This is a great way for students who are not in class to continue learning. The Grade 9/10/11 Courseware includes curriculum maps that explicitly show how the lessons connect to the various Canadian provincial curricula.
- Problem of the Week and Problem of the Month offer students the chance to do some problem solving and keep sharp.
- CS Circles is an excellent resource for students to learn the basics of programming.
In addition to these resources, the CEMC offers a wide range of other online resources supporting Grade 4 to Grade 12.
We have also developed CEMC at Home to support teachers, students and parents during these challenging times.
