The Nine Chapters on the Mathematical Art Contest (NCC)


NCC is a contest, named after the Chinese ancient classic book "The Nine Chapters on the Mathematical Art"  (wiki). Every November, since 2008, the Grand River Chinese School (GRCS) has offered NCC as an annual traditional 1 hour and 15 minute math contest for students of Grade 3 through Grade 10.  NCC is a "warm-up" contest of major Canadian math contests of same grade levels, such as Thales,  Byron-Germain,  Fibonacci,  Pythagoras, Gauss, Pascal and Cayley Contests.


Currently, NCC is organized by GRCS, co-organized and sponsored by Confucius Institute in Waterloo, and sponsored by Canadian mathematical Society (CMS).


During 2008 to 2015, NCC has tested 621 participants, many of them further wrote various Canadian math contests, and they have been listed on honour rolls of those contests for 304
times and obtained golden standards, gold, silver and bronze medals, national or regional champion, or perfect scores for 61 times.  95 students participated in NCC16.
