Department members Jacob Tsimerman and Lindsey Shorser are spending the last two weeks of June in Banff training Canada’s IMO team for their competition in Chiang Mai, Thailand, from July 4 to 16, 2015.
The team is hard at work preparing for this year’s contest. Canada has participated in the IMO since 1981. Last year, Math Team Canada placed 9th overall at the IMO in Cape Town, South Africa.
The full media release about this year’s team can be found on the Canadian Mathematical Society’s website:
