World Mathematical Olympiad Global Finals 2017 Tianjing & Beijing, China

Competitions are important for math students, because we can learn new things. For example, a new type of division we didn’t know before, then we can work on that and it can potentially become something very big in our future.
— Tristan S. member of 2017 Team Canada Level 1

The international math competition saw a congregation of competing students take their math skills to the next level as they fiercely faced a field of teams from highly competitive nations.
