Pine Grove is excited to offer students in grade 7 and 8 the opportunity to participate in this year's Gauss Math Contest again this year. The Gauss is organized and offered through the University of Waterloo's Centre for Education in Mathematics and Computing.

The Gauss is held in school on May 16th and runs for 60 minutes. The format is multiple choice and the problems are based on curriculum common to all Canadian provinces. Registration will be closed on April 13th. Interested students in grades 7 and 8 need to register with Mrs. Miceli in Room 24 prior to the deadline. There will be announcements reminding students where and when to sign up.

​Students are encouraged to begin preparing for the contest at home and can generate random sets of problems at:
