75th William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition

Saturday, December 6, 2014, Grace McCourt, Scott Glorioso, Paul Pernici and Alex Lillich participated in the 75th William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition. The participants of the William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition work on 6 problems from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. and then 6 additional problems from 3 p.m. - 6 p.m. Typically, 50% of the participants who enter this competition nationwide, and in Canada, receive 0 points on it. Based on conversations with the AU participants a couple will receive a non-zero score this year, having solved problem B1, the first problem for the afternoon session. All AU participants gleaned insights on at least one of the problems, therefore, maybe even more will receive a non-zero score. Good job AU participants!

ACM Competition

AU Tuffy Team
The ACM Competition was held on Saturday, November 8, 2014. There were 150 teams at the competition. The problems were really tough this year. Only 30 or so teams were able to solve at least one problem. Ashland University took three teams.

AU Tuffy Team consisted of Joe Hemerly, Cameron Goodson and Ben Bushong.
AU Purple Team consisted of Zack Brown, Alex Gregory and Nazumul Rabbi.
AU Gold Team consisted of Rupesh Marharjan, Chris Yocum and Brady Douglas.

The students enjoyed the experience and found the opportunity highly beneficial in applying what they have learned in the classroom to real world applications.
