2008 Competitions

Hello again to the mathematical community here at Hopkins.

It is again the fall, and it is again the time for competition. The two upcoming fall events are:
(a special note: The Putnam link above is to the page that should be shortly updated to reflect the 2008 exam information.)

As last year's post stated, both are distributed exam competitions, offered locally here at Hopkins, at the undergraduate-level. Both offer cash prizes and all the prestige your time can buy. Read last year's post for more details.

For this year, we are already registered for VTech, whic is given November 1 in the morning. Again, there is no need to individually register for this until the day of the competition. I will post more about this in a couple of week. Also, I wil broadcast via email to all math majors and Math Club members.

Registration for the 69th national Putnam exam closes sometime around October 12, and the exam is held on Saturday, December 6, from 10am-1pm and 3pm-6pm.

Again, we will be offering training sessions, organized with the Math Club here at Hopkins, which will again be weekly seminars, hosted by the same graduate student we used last year. Details to come.
