Hello everyone! Math Union will be holding a new semester social on the 21st of September! It’s from 6:45pm till 9:45pm at Hart House South Dining Room. It is a great chance to get to know each other and there will be a collection of board games and free food!
Are you the new star of the UofT Math team? Are you just curious about math competitions? Do you want free pizza?
Last year, our team placed 4th in the Putnam Mathematics Competition. Each team member earned $1,000 and bragging rights over poor Waterloo. This year, we are looking for new team members to replace our graduated stars.
Come to our orientation (with free pizza!)
Day: Friday, September 14th
Location: MP 102
There will be a brief introduction to the competition, and then we will have a practice test. We will use the test results to select the UofT team.
Regardless of how you do in the practice test, or even if you do not write it, you are welcome to come to our weekly open training sessions, and to write the competition in December.
