Putnam Team Classes

The Putnam Team meets on Wednesdays 4-5pm, in SEO 300.

Here is more information about the William Lowell Putnam Exam, the U.S. national mathematics contest.

The Putnam Team practices all year for this national competition, held in December. Anyone is welcome to come to practices. Try some Putnam problems!

Here is more information about the Illinois Section of the Mathematical Association of America (ISMAA) Spring 2016 math contest. This state math contest for undergraduates takes place on April 8-9. It's a nice stepping stone to the Putnam exam in December.
