Congratulations to the Students that Participated in the 76th William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition
On Saturday, December 5, Grace McCourt, Paul Pernici, Emily Marconi, Michael Woods and Charlie Michel participated in the 76th William Putnam Mathematical Competition. They worked on 6 problems from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. and then 6 more problems from 3 p.m. - 6 p.m. Typically, 50% of the people who enter this competition nationwide (and in Canada) receive 0 points on it. The exam seemed particularly difficult this year, though it seems a few of the AU students made some progress on a couple of the problems. We are expecting that there may have been some nonzero scores again this year. We hope to follow with some additional news on this at a later date. Keep posted and congratulations to the students that participated.
