<p>
The 48th Canadian Mathematical Olympiad (CMO) will be held on <b>Wednesday, March 30, 2016</b>. In North America, South America, and Central America and in time zones covering these areas, the competition will take place from 9 a.m. to 12 noon. Elsewhere in the world, the 3 hour writing period will be arranged in consultation with the CMS. All exams will be proctored by officials who are not family-related to any of the participants being supervised.
<br>
<br>
<b> REGISTRATION PROCEDURES
<br>
</b>
<br>
The CMO is open only to students who have received a direct invitation from the Canadian Mathematical Society (CMS). The CMS will provide registration information to schools with eligible students in early March. Teachers must complete and submit the registration form with each student by March 18, 2016. Once registration is completed, the CMS will mail the competition kit directly to the exam proctoring official.

Almost 50 grade ten students in Ontario and Québec who were interested in mathematics attended the residential camp. "The camp is an opportunity to give the students a flavour of the power and beauty of mathematics,” said camp co-organizer and University of Ottawa mathematics professor Joseph Khoury. The bilingual camp gives participants an opportunity to play mathematical games, make new friends and hone their mathematics skills. Every summer the CMS stages almost 30 camps for over 1,000 students, in partnership with Canadian universities across the country. Students who attend the camps leave with new friends, new ideas and a new outlook on mathematics.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/CanadianMathCommunityNews/~4/szjQegGRrDE" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>https://cms.math.ca/News/item/144/enTue, 30 Jun 2015 00:00 EDThttps://cms.math.ca/MathCamps/<![CDATA[Math Team Canada prepares for International Mathematical Olympiad in Banff]]>
