Results of the 2018 Putnam Exam

Twenty-six UI students participated in the William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition, which was held December 1, 2018. The UI Putnam Team placed 32nd out of some 500 participating colleges in the U.S. and Canada. In the individual competition, six UI students placed on the "Top 500" list, a standard benchmark for excellence on the Putnam, correponding to roughly the top 10% of participants: Ziyi Chen, Weiru Chen, Jason Xia, Samuel Guo, Alan Hu, Kieran Kaempen.

The Putnam Competition is the annual highlight of the UI Math Contest Program whose activities include training sessions, several local math contests with attractive prize purses, and opportunities to participate in prestigious national and international competitions. This year's program is being organized by A.J. Hildebrand and Timur Oikhberg.
