The Gauss Contests are an opportunity for students to have fun and to develop their mathematical problem solving ability.
All students in Grades 7 and 8 and interested students from lower grades.
Wednesday, May 14, 2014
Questions are based on curriculum common to all Canadian provinces.
The Gauss Contests may be organized and run by an individual school, by a secondary school for feeder schools, or on a board-wide basis. All marking of the Contests is done in your school by the organizing teacher, in order to de-emphasize competition.
Schools that have not registered for previous contests are encouraged to participate.
We recommend that students spend some time preparing for our contests by trying to solve problems. Many teachers make this a regular classroom activity, and use past contest problems as part of their regularly assigned work.
We emphasize participation but also recognize top-performing students.
