About Galois /Hypatia contests

Galois /Hypatia contests are Canada-wide math competitions (for grade 10 respectively grade 11).

Centre of Education in Mathematics and Computer Science, within University of Waterloo, organizes and coordinates the contests. The top performers will be awarded certificates of excellence and be recognized at the local school and on CEMC website.

Galois /Hypatia contests have answer-only problems (requiring a student to work out his/her own answer) as well as full-solution problems that require full presentation of solution steps.

The problems in these two contests match closely with Canadian math curriculum across provinces of Canada. The problems challenge students to show well-trained math talents and math expression skills while still focusing on the fundamental of school math curriculum.
