Undergraduate Math Competition
The fourth annual
UW Madison Undergraduate Math Competition (2018)
with prizes for top performers!
- When? Tuesday, April 24, 2018, 5:30-8pm.
- Where? VV B239
- 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 are interested in the competition, please fill this short registration form! It is not actually required (so do not worry if something goes wrong), but it lets us see how many people are interested.
If you have any questions, please contact Dima Arinkin.
