ELMACON 2024 Preparation Sessions

 

Welcome Back! We are starting to get things ready for ELMACON 2024!

 

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.

If you are interested in attending any (or all) of these sessions, please sign up via the form below.

 

Please note: These sessions are meant primarily as in-person events with lots of participation from students in the room, but we recognize that may not be practical in every case. We are investigating making the sessions available online as well, but cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. Also, please note the level of participation with online students may not be as high as those in-person. If you are unsure if you will be able to attend the event in person, we encourage you to complete the form below regardless, so we can keep you up to date with details of how the event will be run.
