Each year Fulford Academy Students participate in several math contests provided by the University of Waterloo. The Pascal, Cayley and Fermat Contests are Multiple Choice contests written by students in grades 9, 10 and 11 respectively. The Fryer, Galois, Hypatia and Euclid contests are long answer contests for students in grades 9, 10, 11 and 12 respectively. To earn a medal for top honours at our school, the highest scoring students must achieve a minimum score determined by the contest center. Certificates of distinction are also awarded to students who score in the top 25% of all participants in the contest that year. This year, we are so pleased to recognize the efforts and achievements of several of our students who took part in these contests.
The recipients of this year’s Top Honours for Fulford Academy are

Each of the contests for grades 9-12 offer the opportunity for the scores of 3 or 5 students to count towards a team score. Team scores are then ranked across Canada, across each of the Provinces and within each province as part of regional Zones. This year Fulford Academy is proud to recognize the efforts of the following students as they contributed to Fulford Academy being named a Zone champion in their contest.
