Mathematical Problem Solving (Putnam) Seminar 

The William Lowell Putnam Mathematics Competition is an annual contest, usually held the first Saturday of December, for US and Canadian undergraduate mathematicians. In this seminar we’ll be solving some extra-curricular math problems to prepare for the Putnam Competition.

You’re welcome to participate in the seminar casually, solving novel problems together with your peers. Just show up at least 70% of the time for credit. If however you’d like to commit to training more seriously for the competition, let me know, and I’ll assign you some goals and help you keep to a routine. Motivation may fade, but discipline persists.

To learn more about the seminar/competition, you can find some current team members in Math Club, or check out the links below, or come find me around the department.
