The 2020 Prefresher will take place from Monday, August 17 2020 to Wednesday, August 26 2020, with a three day break from August 22 to August 24 in between. 

  • Morning sessions are spent on math. There will be two blocks: 9:30am - 10:30am and 10:45am-11:45am, with a ~15 minute break in between. We will send out course materials for math lectures the evening before each day's class. We strongly suggest you review these before coming to class.
  • On some days, we will have a group lunch with guests from noon-1:00pm.
  • Afternoon sessions are spent on programing. From 1:30-2:45, we'll go through the programming notes. After a 15 minute break, small groups will work on exercises 3:00-3:30pm. From 3:30-4:00pm, we will re-group to discuss each other's progress on the exercises.

All material we cover is consolidated in a Prefresher Booklet. Additionally, there will be tutorials and exercise problems which we ask participants to try to work on before we meet in virtually over Zoom. These will be communicated via email.
