The Euclid Mathematics Contest is an opportunity for students to have fun and to develop their mathematical problem solving ability.


Students in their final year of secondary school or CÉGEP students and motivated students in lower grades.


Written in April. See details for current year.


  • 10 questions; some answer only and some full solution
  • marks for full solution questions assigned for form and style of presentation
  • 2.5 hours
  • 100 total marks
  • some calculators permitted

The contest is written by individuals in schools. More information for the supervising teachers is available.

Mathematical Content

Most of the problems are based on curricula up to and including the final year of secondary school. Some content might require students to extend their knowledge and the best way to familiarize oneself with commonly appearing topics is to practice using past contests.

Contest Registration Information

Schools can register for contests online by the deadline. View fees.
