Preparing for the Canadian Senior Math Contest (CSMC)
Date & Times: November 3, 2022: 8:30 am AND 7:30 pm ET
Tune in to learn about math contests prepared by the Centre for Education in Mathematics and Computing (CEMC). We will solve and discuss a few math problems similar to the ones that appear in our contests like the Canadian Senior Math Contest (CSMC), and we will provide information on how to prepare and some tips to write these contests. This preparatory session will be led by CEMC Director Ian Vanderburgh.
We have a series of webinars designed with the future of math and computer science in mind that provide you the opportunity to:
- Learn about the real-world applications of math and computer science
- Discover new skills to improve your math-ability
- Find out tips on choosing the best program for you within the Faculty of Mathematics.
Previous webinars include:
Problem solving with Ian Vanderburgh, Professor
Solve interesting math problems and talk about problem solving strategies that are useful across mathematics, and also in life outside the math classroom. Come prepared to think about and to do some mathematics.
"Why Math?" with Judith Koeller, Professor
Look at several math problems and lots of examples of how math (and computer science) are used in real-world contexts. Examples include: efficiency in delivery routes and manufacturing, speeding up video games, streamlining the airline industry, placement of tsunami detector, making computers accessible to differently abled people, communicating with dogs, fostering Indigenous languages, and predicting life expectancy patterns.
"Describing Artichoke Spirals and Counting Honey Bees" with J.P. Pretti, Professor
The Fibonacci sequence of numbers is famous for its mathematical properties and occurrence in nature. How can we compute the n-th Fibonacci number and why might this be important? In this session, explore algorithms for determining a particular Fibonacci number. This will be a case study of the close connections between mathematics and computer science as well as their widespread application to our everyday lives and the world around us.
