Posted by KES Blogging Team on May 8, 2017 1:57:00 PM

The Pascal (Grade 9), Cayley (Grade 10) and Fermat (Grade 11) Waterloo Math Contests were held February 28th, and presentations to our KES Mathletes were made at the April 12nd School assembly. Certificates of Distinction are awarded to those scoring in the upper 25% of all contestants worldwide, and a medal is awarded to the highest scoring student in the school. For each contest, the top three scores in the school are added together to make up the school team score.

This year, KES placed 1st in Nova Scotia for the Grade 9 Pascal Contest, the Grade 10 Cayley Contest, and the Grade 11 Fermat Contest. TRIPLE PROVINCIAL WINS! In addition, Jay Liu earned the top score in all of Nova Scotia for the Cayley Contest and Jacob Liu and Rebecca Yu tied for the top score in all of Nova Scotia for the Fermat Contest!
