ELMACON registration will open from February 27 until March 31 or until we reach capacity.
For those who register, we must receive your registration fee by April 17, 2006 or you will lose your seat. We will not accept any payments on the day of the event. Remember to include your name and ID number with your payment.
Once we have received your entry fee we will assign to you a seat number. You can look up your seat number by following the link on the left. Please printout your seat number. This is your ticket and you must bring it with you to the contest.
We need a lot of volunteers to run ELMACON. If you are interested in helping please contact elmacon@pims.math.ca.
This contest -- organized by PIMS under the guidance of Dr. Cary Chien, formerly of David Thompson Secondary School in collaboration with the BCAMT and volunteers from Lower Mainland schools of all levels -- is open at nominal cost to students in Grades 5 to 7. It gives them a chance to experience mathematics as an exciting sport.
There is a nonrefundable $10 registration fee.
Contestants will be given a snack and a drink during the refreshment break. All materials for the contest will be provided (pencils, erasers, paper). Note that no calculators are allowed.
