2014 Sun Life Financial Canadian Open Math Challenge - Nov 6/7

2014 Sun Life Financial Canadian Open Math Challenge - Nov 6/7

The COMC is Canada's premier national mathematics competition that is open to any student with an interest in mathematics. The purpose of the Sun Life Financial COMC is to encourage students to explore, discover, and learn more about mathematics and problem solving. The competition serves to provide teachers with a unique student enrichment activity during the fall term.

Approximately the top 50 students from the COMC will be invited to write the Sun Life Financial Canadian Mathematical Olympiad (CMO). Students who excel in the CMO will have the opportunity to be selected as part of Math Team Canada -- a team of six students who travel to compete in the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO). Depending on grade level and performance, students participating in the COMC can also have opportunities to garner awards, to win prizes, to be considered for scholarships, and to get invited to camps.

Teachers: we have posters you can download and print to encourage participation! We also have brochures and web icons you can use. See our Tell Your Students page.


The 2014 COMC will be held on Thursday, November 6th in Canada and the Americas (anywhere in North/South American time zones), and on Friday, November 7th elsewhere in the world.


Registration for the COMC will open on this web page on September 2nd.
