Math Scores High Marks

Williams’ student math teams earned accolades during the 2011-12 academic year, first by placing in the top 10 and receiving an honorable mention out of 460 teams in the prestigious William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition in December. Another group then took first prize in the Regional Undergraduate Mathematics Competition at Central Connecticut State University in April. Both teams were led by coach and math professor Mihai Stoiciu. Check out the problems the team worked on at the Putnam competition at (Solutions are also posted!)
