Undergraduate Mathematics Competition

 

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the [(UM)2C]37 competition will be held online this year on April 4 from 1-4pm.

The University of Michigan organizes every year a mathematics competition for undergraduate students. Usually this competition takes place around the beginning of April. The test consists typically of 10 mathematical problems. The students should solve (with proofs!) as many questions as possible within 3 hours. The difficulty of the problems may vary from easy to extremely hard, but on average they are quite hard. The problems are contributed by department members. Cash prizes are awarded to the top students! Students who want to participate should sign up before the exam.

University of Michigan undergraduate students who would like to participate should send an email to
hderksen@umich.edu with "UMUMC" in the subject line before 5pm on April 2 to register and get access to the canvas site "UMUMC". (Students who already signed up at the undergraduate math office before classes went online should also do this.) On this canvas site, the competition problems will be posted at 1pm on April 4,  and the students can post their scanned solutions before 4:30pm on April 4. More detailed instructions will be posted on the canvas site.
