The Wiseman Mathematics Contest has announced the winners for 2022. The Wiseman Mathematics Contest was initiated by the First Nations University of Canada faculty member Dr. Arzu Sardarli in 2008. PromoScience, a program within the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), has supported the program’s start-up. Since then, thousands of First Nations students in grades 4 to 6 across Canada have participated. The Contest’s purpose is to motivate young students in First Nations schools in Saskatchewan and other provinces to learn Mathematics in a competitive environment.
