3903: Methods of Problem Solving / Problem-Solving
Seminar - Fall 2015
|Link to current year's
This page contains information for students
interested in undergraduate Mathematics Competitions at LSU. A
weekly Problem-Solving Seminar is held each Wednesday evening in
order to practice common Problem-Solving techniques. Students
enrolled in MATH 3903 (Methods of Problem Solving) are expected to
attend every meeting and meet the requirements described in the Syllabus
. See the
information on the Seminar.
The Seminar meetings are also open to any undergraduate LSU
student interested in participating in mathematics competitions.
We work on challenging problems in a fun and informal environment
- pizza and soft drinks are provided!
This year there are two fall competitions:
Tech Regional Mathematics Contest. This half-day
exam is given at the end of October, and typically has over
700 participants from 100+ institutions. There is $750 in
prize money available for the top 5 national performers.
Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition. This
full-day exam is given in early December, and has over 4000
participants from 400+ institutions. There is $25,000 in prize
money available for the top 25 national performers.
If you are interested in signing up for either contest, please
