William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition
A competition for undergraduate college and university students, held across the United States and Canada on the first Saturday of December. Any student can participate up to four times as long as the student has not yet completed a bachelors degree (in any discipline). Students who have had more math and physics courses generally are more successful, but the questions have more to do with problem-solving skills than with any particular knowledge. Students who participate while at College of the Redwoods will gain valuable experience that will benefit them in their future endeavors -- academic and otherwise.
