How to Participate

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. Submit your solutions by the deadline posted on the problem set. 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.

HOW TO SUBMIT SOLUTIONS

You have three options to submit solutions. Be sure to include your name, email address, postal address, the name of your school, and your grade level with your submission. 

1. Email your solutions to talent@math.wisc.edu as an attachment. 

2. Mail your solutions to Talent Search, University of Wisconsin, Department of Mathematics, 480 Lincoln Dr., Madison, WI 53706.

3. (New!) Use our upload form. (You can find detailed instruction about how to do this at the  upload form page.)
