Recommendations: Two recommendations (one academic and one personal) are required.  Be sure to give each recommender a Recommender Form read before writing their letter.  One letter should address your mathematical abilities and accomplishments, while the other letter (from a teacher, mentor, or counselor) should address your personal character.

Cover Letter (Statement of interest, 2 pages):  Why do you want to attend WCMC?  Please include information about your mathematical background and interests, and why you think the camp will be a good fit for you.

Math Challenge Questions Submit clear and detailed solutions for as many questions as you can.  We do not necessarily expect full solutions for every question.  We’re interested in your approach to the question as well as your ability to communicate your ideas clearly and effectively.  Correct answers without explanations will not be considered.
