    William Lowell Putnam Competition

    This is an annual mathematics contest for undergraduate students sponsored by the Mathematics Association of America. The contest is administered the first Saturday of each December and consists of twelve very challenging mathematics problems. Students work on six problems in the morning from 9 until noon and six more problems in the afternoon from 2 until 5. To see a list of recent competitions and solutions, see
