HOW TO GET A COPY OF THE PROBLEM SETS:

Find the current problems at the "Current Problem Set" link to the left.

Also on the left, you can sign up for our email list to be notified when the new problems are posted.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE:

Work on the current problem set, and write up any solutions. By the deadline posted on the problem set, email your solutions to talent@math.wisc.edu or mail your solutions to

Talent Search,
University of Wisconsin,
Department of Mathematics,
480 Lincoln Dr.,
Madison, WI 53706.

Be sure to include your name, email address, postal address, the name of your school, and your grade level.

You may start participating on any problem set. Solutions require a proof or justification. You do not have to solve all five problems in each set; submit any number that you can do. Do not be surprised if you cannot get them all; some of them are very difficult. You are doing well if you can do any of them.

The problem sets are graded; partial credit is given. Solutions and coded lists of solvers will be sent out later. Coded lists of solvers and schools participating can also be found on the "Scores" link above.
