Putnam
Competition
information session
On Friday, September 14, we will have a brief information session followed by a practice test. We will use the practice test to select the UofT team.
We will provide free pizza!

Regardless of how you do, and even if you do not write the practice test, you are very welcome to come to the open training sessions and to write the Putnam competition in December.

There will be training sessions open to everyone throughout the fall term.

Important. Before the session, attempt the problems in the problem sheet. You do not need to have solved all the problems, but you need to have spent some time attempting at least a couple of them. If you do not have time for this, please do not come to the session.
