UCC Math Select brings the thrill of competition to the math arena, training students to write and excel at North America’s most popular math contests — including the Waterloo and American contests.
The program is open to eligible boys and girls in grades 5 through 12 at any school, not just Upper Canada College. Students in grades 5 to 8 don't need experience writing math contests, as instructors will prepare them with the skills and knowledge necessary to achieve the best possible results. They just need a love of math and the desire to take it to the next level. Students in grades 9 to 12 should have some math contest writing experience in order to fully benefit from the program (AMC score of 60 or higher preferred).
