The Team Up Challenge is a set of materials that teachers can use with their students. Working in teams, participants flex their mathematical problem-solving skills through fun and engaging activities. This no-cost challenge is designed to encourage student participation and maximize flexibility for teachers.
Students in Grade 6, 7, or 8, grouped into teams of four.
Registered teachers will be able to access all materials, including instructions and solutions, on June 1, 2023. Materials will also be posted publicly online in mid-August for anyone to use.
In the Team Up Challenge, team members collaborate to complete four parts:
Teachers can run each of the four parts of the Team Up Challenge in person and/or virtually. The 2023 Team Up Challenge question papers will be available in both French and English. Please note that the solutions are currently only available in English.
We’ve designed the Team Up Challenge so that the content will be no higher than what should be covered by the end of Grade 6 (in Canada) while still challenging students in Grades 7 and 8. This inclusive design makes the challenge an excellent opportunity for teachers to get their entire class involved.
The focus of the Team Up Challenge is participation and collaboration. For this reason, teachers are given solutions so that they can check each team’s work. The CEMC does not collect results.
Registration is free. Registration information for the 2023 Team Up Challenge will be posted here in April 2023.
Working on past challenges is a great way for teachers to familiarize themselves with the challenge and for students to practice their problem-solving skills.
