About the event

Gauss Competition

Participating in a mathematics and computing contest helps students develop invaluable skills, like creative problem-solving and big-picture thinking.

CEMC contests can help students:

  • discover and grow a love of mathematics and computer science,
  • apply knowledge in novel situations, and
  • make connections across topics in mathematics and computing.

And because CEMC contests are challenging but attainable activities for young learners, they also build students' confidence in their ability to tackle difficult problems — a key ingredient for student success both inside and outside the classroom.

This is open to students in grades 7 or 8 or anyone that is younger but would like to participate.

Test date: Sunday May 21st, 2023

Location:  DVP and 404, exact location to be sent to participants

Time: 1:30 pm arrival

Cost: $20/student ( goes towards printing and ordering tests and the awards ceremony)

Last day to register: April 10th, 2023

Students will practice for the contest on their own using past contests posted on the CEMC website linked below.
