Centre for Education in Mathematics and Computing

The Centre for Education in Mathematics and Computing (CEMC), founded in 1995 and hosted at the University of Waterloo, administers mathematics and computing contests for Canadian high school students.

The CEMC holds annual mathematics and computer science contests for Canadian high school students. Each successive year of the Canadian Mathematics Competitions (CMC) is named after a different mathematician.

* Grade 7 and 8 - Gauss
* Grade 9 - Pascal
* Grade 10 - Cayley
* Grade 11 - Fermat
* Grade 12 - Euclid
* Grade 13 - Descartes (Now defunct as OAC was termianted in Ontario)

The Euclid contest (previously the Descate) is used as a performance indicator for the University of Waterloo, who will be more likely to consider students with high results. The Canadian Open Mathematics Challenge is another contest offered by the CEMC, catered towards very strong math students.

The CEMC also hosts the Canadian Computing Competition (CCC), which is offered at the Junior and Senior levels for all high school students.
