Putnam Competition and Putnam Seminar

The William Lowell Putnam Competition is a mathematics competition for undergraduate students at colleges and universities in the United States and Canada.  From Professor John Albert:

All students interested in mathematical problem-solving are invited to attend the problem-solving sessions each Wednesday from 5:00 to 6:00 pm in the Physical Sciences Room 1025.  One reason for these sessions is to prepare students for the annual Putnam Competition, a collegiate mathematics contest in the form of an examination administered nationwide on the first Saturday of December.  However, students are welcome to attend the sessions whether or not they intend to take the exam in December.  For more information, contact John Albert at jalbert@ou.edu.

  1. Dr. Shankar mentioned this test in my Probability Theory class. He said that if you score well on the test it can open a lot of doors, especially if you are looking into going to graduate school. However, he said that it would be a very challenging test. He said that the majority of the students that tke this test score very low. So for anyone who wants is taking this test, the best of luck to you.
