The third annual

UW Madison Undergraduate Math Competition (2018)

with prizes for top performers!


  • When? Probably in April, 2018. Details TBD.
  • Where? VV B309
  • What? There will be seven problems from various areas of mathematics (such as algebra, number theory, calculus, combinatorics, and others). We would like it to be challenging, but probably easier than, say, the Virginia Tech competition, and much easier than the Putnam Exam. You can take a look at our Putnam Club page to see what type of problems we have in mind.


If you have any questions, please contact Dima Arinkin.
