CEMC - Euclid Contest

by University of Waterloo

Grades 12 - $10


The Euclid Mathematics Contest is an opportunity for students to have fun and to develop their mathematical problem-solving ability. Most of the problems are based on the mathematical curriculum up to and including the final year of secondary school. Motivated students in lower grades are also welcomed to participate. The paper may include questions based on the topic listed below: • Euclidean and analytic geometry • Trigonometry, including functions, graphs, identities, sine and cosine laws • Exponential and logarithmic functions • Functional notation • Systems of equations • Polynomials, including relationships involving the roots of quadratic and cubic equations, the remainder theorem • Sequences and series • Simple counting problems. The contest is 2 ½ hours in length, consists of 10 questions, each worth 10, for a total of 100. Questions are divided into answers only and full solutions parts. Contestants are reminded that marks for the full solution questions are assigned for form and style of presentation, as well as for answers. A poorly presented solution will not receive full marks. The contest is scheduled on Wednesday, April 11, 2018 in the morning, so the contestants will require to miss part of the school day. Most Calculators are permitted in the contest.
