The University of Waterloo’s CEMC Math Contests Can Be Fun!

April 23, 2024

We have received the results of the University of Waterloo's Centre for Education in Mathematics and Computing (CEMC) - Pascal, Cayley, and Fermat Mathematics Contests held in February 2024, and we couldn’t be prouder of our students’ achievements!

Drum roll, please! Exciting news: Jiho participated in the Caley Contest (grade 10) and achieved a remarkable ranking in the top 11% out of 21,300 grade 10 students who competed. Additionally, Sherry competed in the Fermat (grade 11) contest and secured an exceptional top 25% ranking out of 20,000 grade 11 students who participated.

In total we had 16 MPS students from grades 9 to 12 join the competition - fantastic work, team!

A huge round of applause for our dedicated teacher, Jocelyn Grant, whose unwavering commitment to organizing these competitions continues to inspire our students and demonstrate that the possibilities in the realm of mathematics are limitless!

Jocelyn’s passion and dedication truly shine through as she ignites the spark of curiosity and creativity in each and every student. With her infectious energy and innovative ideas, she transforms learning into a thrilling adventure (as much as can be in math), making the classroom come alive with excitement and wonder. Her unwavering belief in her students' potential empowers them to reach beyond their grasp. Jocelyn Grant is not just a teacher; she is a guiding light, inspiring young minds to soar higher and embrace the endless possibilities that await them. Cheers to an extraordinary teacher who makes learning an unforgettable journey of growth and discovery!

“The Pascal, Cayley and Fermat (PCF) Contests are a fun opportunity for participants to explore the potential of mathematics and their role in it. Designed to be accessible both to those that have written math contests in the past and to those who haven't, these multiple-choice contests can help learners build confidence and inspire them to get excited about math.”  CEMC, University of Waterloo
