Last year, Grade 7 and 8 students eagerly participated in the University of Waterloo Gauss Math Competition.
The Gauss contests introduce students in Grades 7 and 8 to a broader perspective of mathematics in a fun, accessible way. Intriguing problems and a multiple-choice format make the Gauss contests a wonderful opportunity for all participants to grow their interest in and get curious about the power of math.

Some of our students achieved remarkable success by receiving the distinction award, which placed them in the top 25% of their school. Overall our cohort secured a position in the top 20.56 percentile globally, showcasing their talent and dedication to mathematics. Their accomplishments serve as a testament to their hard work and natural aptitude in the subject. What makes their achievement even more impressive is the fact that it was their first time participating in such a competition. Well done students!
