British Columbia Secondary School Math Contest

  • A competition open to high school students from British Columbia

    Capilano University takes part in the BC Secondary School Mathematics Contest. The contest consists of two rounds of competition at the junior (grades 8 to 10) and senior (grades 11 and 12) levels.  A 45-minute multiple choice preliminary round will be held in local secondary schools on Friday, April 6, 2018.  There is no limit to the number of students who may write the preliminary test.  The top junior and senior performers from each local school will be invited to Capilano University on Friday, May 4, 2018 to participate in the final round, have lunch and enjoy some mathematical activities.  Prizes will be awarded at the end of the day.

    If you are a high school math teacher and would like your class/school to participate in the contest, please contact Marsha Anderson. We need the name, address and fax number for your school, as well as an email address of the teacher involved.
