Math League

Math League is a math competition for Grade 4-12 students in the US, Canada, and other countries.

The Math League was founded in 1977 by two high school mathematics teachers, Steven R. Conrad and Daniel Flegler. They both honored by President Ronald Reagan as recipients of Presidential awards for “Excellence in Mathematics Teaching.”  Mr. Conrad and Mr. Flegler have been preparing contests for math students across North America since 1977. TMr. Conrad served for six years as a member of the committee which developed the SAT II for the College Board. 

The purpose of the Math League Contests is to provide students “an enriching opportunity to participate in an academically-oriented activity” and to let students “gain recognition for mathematical achievement”

Math League runs three contest formats:

  • Grades 4-5: 30 multiple-choice questions to solve in 30 minutes, covering arithmetic and basic principles
  • Grades 6-8: 40 multiple-choice questions to solve in 30 minutes, covering advanced arithmetic and basic topics in geometry and algebra    
  • Grades 9-12: Series of 6 contests. Each contest contains 6 short-answer questions to solve in 30 minutes, covering geometry, algebra, trigonometry, and other advanced pre-calculus topics.

Students who score above 12 points in grades 4 and 5, and above 15 points in grades 6-8 are awarded a “Certificate of Merit.”

Contest Schedule

Mathematics and Computing Contests

Mathematics and Computing contests at the University of Waterloo inspire students in Grades 5 to 12 to get excited about math and computer science and stretch their limits. 
 
BEAVER COMPUTING CHALLENGE

The Beaver Computing Challenge (BCC) introduces computer science to students. It is designed to get students with little or no previous experience excited about computing.

Students in Grade 6 or below are eligible for the Grade 5/6 BCC.
Students in Grade 8 or below are eligible for the Grade 7/8 BCC.
Students in Grade 10 or below are eligible for the Grade 9/10 BCC.

CANADIAN COMPUTING COMPETITION

The Canadian Computing Competition (CCC) is a fun challenge for secondary school students with an interest in programming. It is an opportunity for students to test their ability in designing, understanding and implementing algorithms.

Junior Level — any student with elementary programming skills
Senior Level — any student with intermediate to advanced programming skills

Any student may choose to write any level (Junior or Senior) of the contest.

GAUSS MATHEMATICS CONTESTS
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.
 
PASCAL, CAYLEY AND FERMAT MATHEMATICS CONTESTS

The Pascal, Cayley and Fermat Contests are an opportunity for students to have fun and to develop their mathematical problem solving ability.

Students in Grade 9 or below are eligible to write the Pascal Contest.
Students in Grade 10 or below are eligible to write the Cayley Contest.
Students in Grade 11 or below are eligible to write the Fermat Contest.
 
FRYER, GALOIS AND HYPATIA MATHEMATICS CONTESTS

The Fryer, Galois and Hypatia Math Contests are an opportunity for students to write a full-solution contest. They are fun way to develop mathematical problem solving skills through a written mathematical activity.

Students in Grade 9 or below are eligible to write the Fryer Contest.
Students in Grade 10 or below are eligible to write the Galois Contest.
Students in Grade 11 or below are eligible to write the Hypatia Contest.
 
EUCLID MATHEMATICS CONTEST

The Euclid Mathematics Contest is an opportunity for students to have fun and to develop their mathematical problem solving ability.

Students in their final year of secondary school or CÉGEP students and motivated students in lower grades.

CANADIAN SENIOR AND INTERMEDIATE
MATHEMATICS CONTESTS
The Canadian Senior and Intermediate Mathematics Contests (CSMC and CIMC) are two contests designed to give students the opportunity to have fun and to develop their mathematical problem solving ability.
 
Students in Grades 10 or 9 or below (CIMC) and Grades 12 or 11 and CÉGEP students (CSMC); motivated students in lower grades are also encouraged to write these contests.
 
CANADIAN TEAM MATHEMATICS CONTEST
The Canadian Team Mathematics Contest (CTMC) is a fun and challenging team competition.
 
Teams of 6 secondary school students in any combination of grades. At least half of the problems in the Individual Event, and many problems in the Team Event, are accessible to students in grade 9 or 10.
 
If you’re interested in writing one of our contests, contact our school counsellor for more details.
