Written in November by 76 KES students from Grades 9 to 12, these contests are written and marked by The Centre for Education in Mathematics and Computing (CEMC) at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, and they are administered by schools. Grades 9 and 10 wrote the Canadian Intermediate Math Contest and Grades 11 and 12 wrote the Canadian Senior Math Contest. This was a 2-hour challenge of Math skills; one that the students took on with enthusiasm and effort!
