Course Overview

Housed within the Faculty of Mathematics at the University of Waterloo, the Centre for Education in Mathematics and Computing (CEMC) is Canada’s largest organization for promoting and creating various math contests. The difficulty level of these contests are intermediate level and this prep course helps students grow logical thinking and problem solving skills.

  • Pascal, Cayley and Fermat are designed to be accessible both to students who have participated in a math contest in the past and to those who haven’t, these multiple-choice contests can help learners build confidence and inspire them to get excited about math. 
  • The Fryer, Galois and Hypatia:  These contests are a unique opportunity for students to write a full-solution contest — a format that can help learners develop both problem-solving and communication skills.
  • Gauss is a wonderful opportunity for all students of Gr 7 & 8  to grow their interest in and get curious about the power of math.
  • Doing well in Euclid can help gain admission to the Faculty of Mathematics Programme in University of Waterloo.
  • Designed for motivated students of national and international boards from Grade 7 to 12 to develop deeper understanding and application of pure math concepts.

  • Well structured curriculum with concept-based modules, quizzes, advanced problem solving, weekly assignments, mock test series of both past & authentic papers & doubt clarifications.

  • Collaborative & Encouraging approach to promote confidence to score top percentile results highlighted in our past results.

  • Individual journey tracked through continuous feedback on our internationally benchmarked virtual learning platform.

Who is it for?

Note: Qualification parameters for AIME have been modified in the year 2022. According to the new criteria, the AIME floor has been set to a higher percentage of scores that would allow a consistent number of AIME qualifiers, rather than a fixed percentage. AMC 10/ AMC 12 students who have achieved the set score value or higher qualify for the AIME.

“Both the art of problem solving courses and the AMC courses are essential for anyone who wants to take the AMC. All of the content is covered in a way that is engaging, understandable and can make anyone interested in math. A big thanks to CourseLeap for the super helpful amc courses!”

Anamika Changrani Rastogi

Dhirubhai Ambani International School, Mumbai, AMC-10, 2019- 20. Qualified for AIME in 2020

“In my journey to achieve a high mark for the Cayley 2021 exam, / was puzzled as to what the steps for my learning should be. For this reason, I took a recommendation from my career counselor and chanced upon CourseLeap for education. CourseLeap provides teachers for its students to be able to comprehensively grasp concepts with a personal touch, leading to a higher plane of understanding of advanced mathematical topics. After going through with the course, I have reached a stage that I didn’t think I could have reached using independent learning styles. I would take the opportunity to learn from CourseLeap in a heartbeat if I went back in time”

“I was a part of the CEMC Fermat and Hypatia 2021 prep course. The overall course structure and content was very organized and apt for the examinations, and the regular mock paper practice and doubt solving sessions helped me to improve my score and problem solving skills. The portal used to send weekly practice questions and papers was extremely useful.”

Aakrit Singhal

Podar International School, Mumbai, Grade 11, IBDP, 2021. Received a Distinction

“This CEMC has made me better at solving problems that require a higher level of mathematical conceptual understanding. I think the module quality was very good and the team was very responsive to the feedback I gave them. The integration of more problem solving was a major improvement in this program. I was also able to get more clarity in geometric concepts.”

Nikhil Pande

Oberoi International School, Mumbai, Grade 10, MYP, 2023

“I feel like my overall learning has been very holistic as taking part in this CEMC course has managed to teach me various new methods on solving sums that I have already encountered in the past and also learnt how to approach new question types altogether. The regularity and duration of the classes was perfect so it did not make me uninterested in the class and helped keep me engaged. Overall the classes were really helpful!”

Rishi Sankhe

Dhirubhai Ambani International School, Mumbai, Grade 11, 2023

“The CEMC course has helped me understand the pattern of the paper, and learn creative ways to solve problems. It also helped me avoid making careless mistakes. We learned indispensable strategies for improving test-taking abilities which were wonderful, and honed our problem solving skills in an engaging and enjoyable manner!”
