Thanks to coordinators Justin Luo and David Geng for organizing the very successful 2016 Duke Math Meet on November 12. Tony Qiao and Trung Can coordinated efforts by Problem Solving Seminar students and others to create original problems for the nearly 300 high school students from about 25 high school students throughout the Carolinas and Virginia. Student volunteers helped register teams, lead them to various test sites, serve breakfast and lunch, proctor exams, and other tasks.
Several dozen Duke undergraduates participated in the 2016 Virginia Tech and Putnam math competitions. Results of the Putnam competition will be announced in late March.
