MATHEMATICAL CONTENT: The Contest Committee ensures that most of the problems require only concepts found in the curriculum common to all provinces. Rather than testing content, the problems test logical thinking and mathematical problem solving.

AWARDS AND COMPETITION: Every student who writes the Fryer, Galois or Hypatia Contest will receive a Certificate of Participation.
The top 25% of the competitors in each of the three Contests are divided into three categories: Gold Standard, Silver Standard and Bronze Standard, in the ratio 1 : 2 : 3, and receive Gold, Silver and Bronze Certificates accordingly.
