The winning school will be the school with the highest average score.
For more details, have a look the rules page.
There is no minimum number of students, but a class can not contain more than 45. Scoring of classes of 15 students or less is the cumulative total of points for students in the class. For classes of more than 15 students, the score will be calculated by multiplying by 15 the average points of all students in the class.
For any technical concern: use the Netmath technical support line at 1-888-528-8066.
One student per level, one class per level and one school for each of the following provinces: Alberta, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Ontario and Quebec.
A score of 1 to 8 is assigned to each problem, depending on the difficulty level of the problem. A student is entitled to as many attempts as he wishes in order to succeed in each of the problems. However, with each retry, the number of points to be won is reduced by one point, to a minimum of 1 point per problem. The student can skip a problem and then come back if necessary.
Each level includes a bonus question that is worth 15 or 20 points. A maximum of 250 points can be accumulated in each level.
