almost impossible to get a maximum
score. They have to be super smart to
achieve that," said Harm Derksen,
assistant professor of mathematics
and Putnam local supervisor.
A six-hour long mathematical
marathon, the Putnam competition is a
nationwide undergraduate competition
sponsored by the Mathematical Asso-
ciation of America. The event consists
of an examination on topics common
to the undergraduate mathematics cur-
riculum with an emphasis on ingenuity
rather than knowledge. This year,
roughly 47 University students will
"I like competing against others
'to see how good I am at it," said
Engineering freshman Dennis Lu, a
The examination consists of two
three-hour long sessions where contest-
ants are given six problems to solve in
Lu said the extensive testing period is
a likely turn-off to those who do not
have a strong math skills or an interest
in the subject.
"If anything, it's not enough
time," he said.
Although the statistics are dishearten-
ing, Lu said he is approaching the exam
with a positive attitude.
"It's got me kind of worried, but I'm
still confident that I can do well."
Each mathematical proof is graded on
a scale of zero to 10 points. For each
problem, contestants must provide all
work in the form of an essay to justify
their answer and obtain full credit.
The highest score in the national
competition last year was 101. The high-
est score from the University of Michi-
gan last year was 50.
Derksen said that it is extremely rare
for a student to complete all 12 ques-
tions of the exam. "Typically, most stu-
dents will only work on a few problems,
spending much more than 30 minutes
on each problem they work on, he said.
"The average person will spend much
more time and will probably not even be
able to find a proof."
In preparation for the exam, the
Department of Mathematics offers a
weekly Problem-Solving Seminar.
The MAA awards prizes as much
as $25,000 to the winning schools'
departments of mathematics for high
performance in the Putnam competi-
tion. In addition, smaller prizes are
awarded to individual members of
William Putnam, a leading advocate
for intellectual intercollegiate competi-
tion in mathematics studies, inspired the
event that started in 1938. The competi-
tion was originally designed to encour-
age a healthful rivalry between
university students of mathematics in
the United States and Canada.
Results for this year's exam will be
available in early April.
