The Canadian Mathematical Olympiad (CMO) is one of the older national mathematics competitions. Younger than its Eastern European counterparts, it predates the Olympiads of the USA, UK and most other countries that have participated in the International Mathematical Olympiad.
Throughout the years, the CMO problems sub-committees have sought to vary the problems according to topic and skill requirements. While some problems might need a leap of insight or special ingenuity, other problems should reward the competent and careful student. Some problems might need only clear reasoning or a sure technique; others might be easy to see, but require a high level of exposition or attention to detail so as to avoid pitfalls and ensure coverage of all possibilities.
The above is an excerpt from the Preface written by Edward J. Barbeau, University of Toronto, a long time enthusiast of mathematics competitions and a tireless contributor in the first twenty-five years.
We invite you to discover this exciting compilation of CMO exams. The exams are indexed by year and all problems and solutions are presented in english and french. You will also find a listing of the top three prize winners for each year.
A book with the following twenty-five years (1994-2019) will be available soon.
In celebration of its 50th anniversary, the Canadian Mathematical Society presented three comprehensive volumes encompassing the achievements, research and publications of the Canadian mathematical community.
CMS Treatises in Mathematics Book Series
CMS Treatises in Mathematics is a collection of short monographs, dedicated to well defined subjects of current interest. These treatises emphasize the interdisciplinary character of the mathematical sciences and facilitate integration of methods and results from different areas of current research. Each book will deal with a current topic and will be written for students and non-specialists, allowing them to enter a new subject and move on to the more advanced literature. There are three books in this series.
This series is no longer being published, but the books below may be purchased through CRC Press.
The Canadian Problem Series
The Canadian Problems Series is a series of problem-oriented works that was published in partnership with the Mathematical Association of America. There were two books published in this series.
This series is no longer being published, but the books below may be purchased through the American Mathematical Society bookstore.
