St. Theresa of Lisieux home to several math whizzes

The 2018 Canadian Senior and Intermediate Mathematics contests were written by students across the country in November 2018. The Canadian Senior Mathematics Contest (CSMC) and Canadian Intermediate Mathematics Contest (CIMC) are two contests designed to give students the opportunity to have fun while developing their mathematical problem-solving abilities. It is coordinated by the University of Waterloo, and the results were recently released.

Congratulations to St. Theresa of Lisieux CHS in Richmond Hill; its intermediate students finished 1st in its competitive zone, and 11th in Canada! They were awarded a plaque which will be presented to the top 5 intermediates students who wrote this test, Evan Zheng, Eugene Lee, Ellina Zhang, John Dong, and Thomas Yang, pictured below. Grade 10 student, Evan Zheng, finished first in the school’s intermediate division and was also awarded the silver medal for scoring highest in all of Central Ontario in the Canadian Open Mathematics Competition.

St. Theresa of Lisieux senior students also finished very high in the CSMC. Congratulations Payam Fakoorziba who finished first in the school’s senior division.

Great job students!
