For the Putnam practice sessions on Tuesday, November 4 and Tuesday, November 18, work on the problems from Putnam practice problems #3. Students will present their solutions to these problems in those practice sessions.

The Quarter Putnam was given on Tuesday, October 28.


The 2014 Putnam examination will be given on Saturday, December 6, 2014 (location to be determined—probably in the MATH building).

The Putnam practice sessions are held every Tuesday from 12:30-2:00 PM in room 201 of the Geography building (GEOG). The faculty advisor is Greg Martin. The UBC math department provides pizza and pop for all practice sessions (starting on September 23). The math department's Putnam FAQ has more information, as does the official Putnam web site.

All students are welcome to log in at any time to the Putnam registration system and update their yes/maybe/no decisions about taking the Putnam examination.
