2011 U of I Undergraduate Math Contest Results

Twenty-five students participated in this year's U of I Undergraduate Math Contest, which was held March 5, 2011. The co-winners of the contest, and recipients of the $300 top prize, were Brian Freidin and Danyang Zhuo, who obtained 43 out 60 possible points. The next highest scorers, with 39 points each, were Ran Bi, Sakulbuth Ekvittayaniphon, and Yixiao Nie.

The U of I Undergraduate Math Contest is a locally organized contest, offered in the spring of each year. It is modeled after the Putnam Exam, a nationwide math contest for undergraduates that has been called the "world's toughest math test" and which takes place in December of each year. The U of I Undergraduate Math Contest, along with a similar contest in the fall, the U of I Mock Putnam Exam, is part of an extensive Putnam training program at the U of I, organized by Professors Jozsef Balog and A.J. Hildebrand.
