Description

The Fryer, Galois, and Hypatia (FGH) Contests are a unique opportunity for students to write a full-solution contest — a format that can help learners develop both problem-solving and communication skills. These fun, engaging contests inspire creative problem-solving as students tackle problems that build to a larger, more complex problem to solve in each question.

Audience

  • Students in Grade 9 or below are eligible to write the Fryer Contest.
  • Students in Grade 10 or below are eligible to write the Galois Contest.
  • Students in Grade 11 or below are eligible to write the Hypatia Contest.

Date

Written in April. Visit Our Contests for dates and deadlines for the current year.

Format

  • 4 questions; some answer only and some full-solution
  • 75 minutes
  • Score out of 40
  • Marks are awarded for completeness, clarity, and style of presentation. A correct solution, poorly presented, will not earn full marks.
  • Written by individuals on paper
  • Some calculators permitted

Mathematical Content

Questions on the FGH Contests are based on a curriculum common to all Canadian provinces. Rather than testing content, most of the problems test logical thinking and mathematical problem-solving. Practicing with past contests is a great way for students to get to know the style of questions that appear on the contests, as well as common topics.

 

滑铁卢(Waterloo)系列数学竞赛是一个覆盖从7年级到12年级的全年龄段数学竞赛,又叫加拿大数学竞赛(Canadian Mathematics Competition),是加拿大的官方数学竞赛。该项竞赛从1963年起,至今已经有57年历年,由设立于Waterloo大学数学系的加拿大数学与计算机中心(CEMC)举办,通常也被称为Waterloo数学竞赛。

 

滑铁卢大学始建于1957年,在加拿大最权威的教育杂志Maclean’s(麦克林)的排名榜上,连续五年综合排名第一第二。滑铁卢大学设有加拿大唯一一所数学学院,这也是北美乃至全世界最大的数学学院,因滑铁卢大学在数学领域的优良声誉及传统,以及欧几里德数学竞赛考察标准的严格性和专业性,该竞赛成绩在加拿大和美国大学中已经得到广泛认可,被誉为类似加拿大“数学托福”的考试。

【比赛特点】

(1)可选择的比赛种类非常多,有适合各种不同年龄段学生的比赛;

(2)比赛难度相对较小,比较适合想参加数学类竞赛,但本身数学程度并不是特别出挑的学生;

(3)在加拿大的高校中有比较大的影响力,尤其是Euclid的比赛成绩;

(4)部分赛题以测试学生的分析能力、逻辑思维能力为主。
