- Caribou Contest for Students of Grades 3 to 12 - The Caribou Mathematics Competition is an online contest for students in
grades 3-12 from all types of school, including home schooling. Contests are
held six times per year Canada wide for students for all five grade levels
3/4, 5/6, 7/8, 9/10, 11/12 and are accessible in both English and
French. Contest results and detailed statistics are available on the evening

the year are added up in the Caribou Cup and top scoring students receive
prizes of $1500 in total. All previous contests with their questions are
available online, for example, for individual practice, for use in class at
schools, or for mathematics clubs. Caribou contests are unique in having one
interactive question. All these mathematical games are available online and
are very popular. Video solutions exist for selected questions.
