The 2015 Putnam examination will be given on Saturday, December 5, 2014. Students should arrive in room 103 of the mathematics building (MATH) no later than 7:45 AM. The north door of the building will be open for you to enter through. The first half of the exam will run from 8–11 AM, and the math department will provide lunch from 11 AM–1 PM. The second half of the exam runs from 1–4 PM. All you have to bring is something to write with.

The Quarter Putnam was given on Tuesday, November 10.


Putnam practice sessions are held every Tuesday from 12:30–2:00 PM during the fall semester; they will start again in September 2015. The faculty advisor is Greg Martin. 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.
