Putnam Competition

The Putnam Competition is a mathematics contest open to all undergraduates in the U.S. and Canada. Carleton has a long history of participation in this contest, and students who do particularly well stand to win cash prizes and graduate fellowships.

This year it will be written on Dec. 5 2020 . Update: [Aug. 2020] we have just been informed that the Putnam Competition for this year will be delayed to Feb. 20, 2021. For more information see MAA website .

In keeping with past years, leading up to the exam there will be weekly practice sessions where we will go through various problem solving methods and strategies. There will be a focus on Putnam type problems, but many of the ideas and methods are generally applicable and may be useful in your courses. All are welcome -- but it is not required for you to attend the sessions in order to write the exam and vice-versa. If you wish to be added to the email list please contact Dr. Amundsen
