Every Monday Professor Jackson will post a problem. Copies of the problem (and answers to the old problems) are available on the table in front of the Math Office, MH 308. Solutions should be submitted to the Math Office by Wednesday of the following week at 12:00 pm. Answers will be posted by the Monday after the problem is due.
The students with the most points throughout the semester will be eligible for the prizes above. It's never too late to enter since the point values of the problems will increase as the semester progresses.
This fall we will have two divisions, one for undergraduate students (no prior baccalaureate degree), and one for graduate students. Winners will be announced on Wednesday, December 5th.
We will also submit the names of these winners to the Scholarship Committee for consideration when the Math Department scholarships are awarded.
Interested students are also encouraged to take this year's Putnam Exam (a nationwide problem solving competition) which will be given on Saturday, December 1st. See Professor Jackson (MH 308, phone 408-924-5173, email: email@example.com) for further details.
