Registration

Please use the forms at the bottom of this page to register and submit team rosters.

When students participate in Math Challengers, they will then meet teams from other schools at the regional competition held in February. The top teams from each region will advance to the March Provincial Finals to be held in the Lower Mainland. The number of teams advancing to the Provincials from a region is determined by the number of participating teams in that region. Each level of competition offers distinctive school and personal awards. Math Challengers coaching materials are unique for their emphasis on team-based problem-solving.
