Guess what we are! [click here for answer]
The 2012 William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition will be held on Saturday, December 1. This is the premier collegiate mathematical competition in the US. The competition consists of an exam in two parts: 6 questions in the morning and 6 more in the afternoon. Exam question are “constructed to test originality as well as technical competence” and answering even one correctly is really big deal. Participation is free and top finishers win some money and lots of prestige, but most people compete just for the fun of it (and the bragging rights that come from a positive score). Old exams and solutions are available online: http://amc.maa.org/a-activities/a7-problems/putnamindex.shtml.
Professors Axon and Brown will hold a Putnam information and preparation meeting on Wednesday 10/3 from 4:00-5:00. Please drop in (anytime during the meeting) to hear about the Putnam and see some example problems and solutions.
Those interested in taking the exam should give their names to Professor Axon by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, visiting him in Herak 221, or stopping by the informational meeting on Wednesday 10/3. You must sign up by 2:00 PM on Friday, October 5.
