Elementary Math Challenges

Title: Easy Putnam Problems
Speaker: Miguel A. Lerma
Speaker Info: Northwestern University
Brief Description: This is a training session for the Putnam Competition
Special Note: This is a training session for the Putnam Competition

We will review some of the problems that appeared in the Putnam Competition in the past and were easy in the sense that they were solved by a large number of participants. The ability to identify which problems are easier may help in a higher score since all problems are rated in the same 0-10 scale. Given that the median score in the exam is very low (often 0), even just one problem solved correctly, regardless of difficulty, places the participant in an advantageous position.
