Meeting Handouts (Old)

2017-18 Info on this page

This page will be thrown into disuse, but will be kept as a tribute to the fleeting time we've shared with our old friend and god.

About

Competition Math Circle's handouts are made by its officers. Each handout covers topics beyond those learned in school and normally consists of 2 pages: 1 page of key concepts and example problems, and 1 page of problems to solve.
