Way to Go, Grades 7 and 8 Mathletes!

All Grade 7 and Grade 8 students recently took part in the University of Waterloo Gauss Mathematics Competition. This is the last contest in a series of year-long challenging Centre for Education in Mathematics and Computing (CEMC) mathematics competitions for students from Grades 7 to 12. This year’s results indicated some excellent up-and-coming mathletes.
Congratulations go out to Ezra Choo ‘26 who achieved the highest mark in our School on the 2022 Grade 8 Gauss Contest and to Atsushi Ito ‘27 who earned the highest result on the Grade 7 contest in our School. The overall results were excellent, and I congratulate the following students who scored in the top 25% of participants:

Grade 7: 
Atsushi Ito ‘27 (first place)
Amelia Glass ‘27 (second place)
Isaac Woodworth ‘27 (third place)
Ken Hojo ‘27, Lillian Blois ‘27, Andrew Klein, and Jack Cosgrove
Grade 8: 
Ezra Choo ‘26 (first place)
William Larder ‘26 (second place)
Hunter Hood ‘26 (third place)
Renata Nieto, Westin Endres, Isaac Angus, and Ruby Wheelock
It has been a great year of mathematical growth for our students: from our regular Dalhousie University Math Circle events to our Problem of the Week challenges, I commend all students for their interest and participation in all things mathematical!
