The 2019 Canadian Open Mathematics Challenge — Nov 7/8

Share:  

The Canadian Open Mathematics Challenge (COMC) is Canada's premier national mathematics competition open to any student with an interest in and grasp of high school math. The purpose of the 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 80 top-ranking students from the COMC and the Canadian Mathematical Olympiad Qualifying RepĂȘchage (CMOQR) will be invited to write the Canadian Mathematical Olympiad (CMO). Based on the results from the COMC, the CMO and other national and international mathematics competitions and camps, the Canadian Mathematical Society IMO Committee will then select six students as part of Math Team Canada to travel to, and compete in, the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO).

Top COMC female contestants will also qualify to be part of Girls’ Math Team Canada to represent Canada at the European Girls' Mathematical Olympiad (EGMO). EGMO is an international mathematics competition.

Depending on their grade level and performance, students participating in the COMC will also have the opportunity to be considered for university scholarships, get invited to math camps, garner awards, and win prizes.

Returning for 2019: Teacher Appreciation Prizes

Date:

The 2019 COMC will be held on Thursday, November 7th in Canada and the Americas (anywhere in North/South American time zones), and on Friday, November 8th elsewhere in the world.

Teachers can register their schools for the COMC by clicking the link below. Registration costs CAD$25.00 per student in Canada and USD$30 per student for international participants. The registration deadline is Thursday, October 24th.

Problem of the Week!

During the weeks prior to the COMC competition, the CMS is happy to present our Problem of the Week (POTW). Please visit our POTW page for past problems and solutions. Here is the latest problem:

How many subsets with three elements can be formed from the set $\{ 1 , 2 , 3, \dots , 20 \}$ such that $4$ is a factor of the product of the three numbers in the subset?
