Competition Option Descriptions:

Integration Bee: Remember how spelling bees work? This is a similar style of competition. There may be an initial written elimination round to select 27 finalists, then 5 question rounds of three people competing head-to-head at a time. The top three winners will compete round-robin style to determine final places. 

Oral Competition: A progressively harder related series of mathematical logic puzzles which require no particular math background. You are not expected to solve all of them, and will have about 40 minutes to think through your solution before you explain it. You will present your solution to a judge or two, and if selected for a prize, will present your solution during a math club meeting.

*Close relatives of faculty members of the Applied Mathematics are not eligible.
