There will be a subtle change for the Gauss 7 Developing Course's first lesson on Mar. 25 from 3:30PM-4:30PM. On the first class, I will be teaching an open class with a topic of an introduction of typical math competitions for grades 5-9.
Then, I will be guiding everyone to do some problems from the Waterloo Gauss 7 Contest. Before the class, I will post the math problems here for everyone to try to take a try first.
The registration for the 2023 Discrete Mathematics Course is open! This is an introductory course, which starts next Friday the 24th, for advanced courses of math and computer science majors.
There are few spots left, so don’t forget to register! Please visit https://dccoding.ca/programs to register.

We have two new instructors joining us: Yuko and Asaad!
We are very pleased to announce that we have two new volunteer instructors joining our team!
One of them is Yuko Xiao, who is a Grade 10 student at White Rock Christina Academy. Since she began participating in math competitions in seventh grade, she has developed an interest in mathematics. She has received numerous awards from Waterloo for being in the top 25% and top in school (AMC, CEMC). In addition, she has a strong understanding of both standard math and IB criterium math. She can therefore instruct in both a wider but less deep shape as well as a deeper but narrower form (IB). Hope to see you in class; she is really honoured to have the opportunity to teach and interact with new people in DC Coding.
I am very delighted to announce that we have several new volunteer instructors joining our team!
One of our instructors is Yanzhi Cui. He is currently is in UC Davis University, majored in applied mathematics.
Another instructor is Pierce Dewitt, who is currently Grade 12 studying at West Point Grey Academy. He is an honor roll student with A in his math and science studies. He is one of our math and science instructors.
In addition, another coding instructor is Ethan Wang, who is in grade 8 at R.C. Palmer Secondary School. He is very familiar with Python and has done lots of projects with it.
They will certainly bring over an abundance of knowledge. Welcome!
I am very pleased to announce that our official website has been launched today! Our website is https://dccoding.ca. Please keep watching the website as we will have an increasing amount of courses available.
