Online Math CoNTEST

Sorry, we will not run the contest until further notice.

Designed to be inclusive and fun, this competition can be used as a classroom activity for students who have completed or are taking enriched Grade 9 Math, Grade 10 Math, Grade 11 Math or Grade 12 Math. The inherent flexibility of a web-based contest means that it can be written at any time of the day or as an after-school activity.
