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 small team of 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.

Thank you for participating in the 2014 COMC!
