Canadian Senior & Intermediate Mathematics Contests
Last November, we had 32 motivated students rise to the challenge of competing in either the Canadian Senior Mathematics Competition (CSMC) or the Canadian Intermediate Math Competition (CIMC). These are 2-hour contests requiring full solutions that provide students with opportunities to demonstrate an excellent knowledge of various mathematical topics.
The CIMC is offered to students in Grade 10 or below. This year, there were 8450 worldwide participants and the worldwide average score was 30.1 out of 60.
Certificates of Distinction are awarded to students who achieved a minimum qualifying score of 38 out of 60. A Certificate of Distinction and a school medal for achieving the top score of 38 will be awarded to Olivia Budweth (Grade 10), Jessica Jackson (Grade 10), and Kaitlyn Zhang (Grade 9). The school medals have not yet arrived, and will be awarded once they are delivered to CDS.
The CSMC is offered to students in Grade 12 or below. This year, there were 9895 worldwide participants. The worldwide average score was 28.5 out of 60. Certificates of Distinction are awarded to students who achieved a minimum qualifying score of 34 out of 60.
This year, Certificates of Distinction are presented to: Kevin Yang (Grade 11), with a score of 34, and Stone Li (Grade 11), with a score of 35. A Certificate of Distinction, a spot on the CSMC Honour Roll, and, once it arrives, the school medal for achieving the top score of 43, is awarded to Jordan Chen (Grade 12).
Congratulations to all who participated in these two challenging contests. Please reach out to your math teacher for your score if your results were not mentioned.
The Mathematics and Computer Science departments would like to remind students that there are more enrichment opportunities coming up in the near future. The Canadian Computing Competition will be held on February 15th, and the Pascal, Cayley, and Fermat math contests will be written on February 22nd. Sign-up Google Forms are available through your Math or Computer Science teachers’ Google Sites.
CDS wishes to recognize and acknowledge the land on which the school operates. For thousands of years, these have been the traditional lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. We also recognize the traditional territory of the Huron-Wendat, Anishinaabe and the Haudenosaunee peoples who also shared this land. CDS respects the relationship with these lands and recognizes that our connection can be strengthened by our continued relationship with all First Nations, by acknowledging our shared responsibility to respect and care for these lands and waters for future generations.
