Woburn Math Department

We offer courses at various levels that caters to the students’ needs. Our main objective is to teach and mentor our students in such a way that they are successful in their future endeavours.

At Woburn CI, the math department has witnessed year after year great achievements by students over the years. In 2014, it was no different. One of our students, Ben Zhang, wrote the 2014 Canadian Open Math Challenge and was awarded the silver award for grade 12 in Toronto, the bronze award for the province of Ontario and the honour roll for Canada. Ben has then been invited to participate in contests that is world wide as he strives to represent Canada. Also, in February 2015, Woburn sent a team of its best 6 math students and competed in the local city team math challenge held at Marc Garneau CI and did not disappoint. The team, named the Cartesian Cartel, finished in style by easily capturing the championship. The team goes to defend its title in the last team city challenge in April at Albert Campbell CI. Our school also finished 3rd in the Canadian division in the Atlantic Pacific Math League in 2014. Year after year Woburn has many students participating and obtaining very respectable scores in Waterloo math contests as well as the Canadian National Math League. It is to no surprise that we continue this great tradition of mathematical excellence!
