##### SFU VS. UBC 2022

# CONTEST OVERVIEW

The SFU vs. UBC competition was held online in the spring of 2022 for undergraduate students at UBC and SFU. The contest paper consisted of 4 sections corresponding to 4 topics: Calculus, Linear Algebra, Discrete Math, and Number Theory. Each section had 2 problems. Teams of up to 3 students worked together to solve 1 problem from each section. In the summer of 2023, this contest underwent a transformation, becoming the Clash of Equations: Undergraduate Mathematics Competition.
