ELMACON 2023 Preparation Sessions


Welcome Back! We are starting to get things ready for ELMACON 2023!


As in past years, we will be running a number of "preparation sessions" to let students get a taste of ELMACON. The ELMACON Prep sessions are free sessions designed to introduce students to the type of questions they'll see during the competition. At each session, ELMACON instructors will go through useful mathematical techniques and will use questions from past exams will be used to teach techniques useful for the competition. The sessions are open to anyone and will give students a taste of what the competition will be like.


After each session, this page will be updated with materials used by the instructor.
