Congratulations to Jamin Feng for placing in the Top 25 of British Columbia Grade 7 math students!
ELMACON is run by the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences, under the guidance of Dr. Cary Chien, formerly of David Thompson Secondary School in collaboration with the BCAMT and volunteers from UBC, SFU and the Lower Mainland. ELMACON gives students from grades 5 to 7 a chance to experience mathematics as an exciting sport.
The contest is modelled after the successful MathCounts competitions (which are also supported by PIMS), but is aimed at younger students. Students from each of grades 5, 6, and 7 compete in separate divisions. Each division enjoys three rounds of competition.
Jamin placed in the Top 25 of all Grade 7s in this 2015 competition! Congratulations!
