MATH MEET 2018 { home }

The next Math Meet will be held on Saturday February 24, 2018.

The Math Marathon has begun! The first competition in the Math Meet is the Marathon. Students have weeks to answer the questions. Download the PDF file below for the questions and also the instructions. Answers must be postmarked or received by February 12, 2018.
We are sad to report that Dr. Rudy Horne, whom we had invited to speak at the Math Meet, has died. (News article at Morehouse College) We considered a variety of options, but have not found a suitable substitute speaker. We therefore expect to hold the third round of Team Elimination as usual.
We will still show the movie Hidden Figures, for which Horne was a consultant, on campus the evening of Friday, February 23. There will be a panel discussion from 4:30 to 5:45 in the auditorium of the School of Sciences and Mathematics building at 202 Calhoun St. Members of the panel will include faculty from mathematics, psychology, and the College's Office of Institutional Diversity. They'll discuss issues such as the depiction of mathematicians and mathematics in this and other films, racial and gender inequality in scientific jobs, and the specific situations depicted in this movie. The panel will be followed by snacks in the atrium of the same building. At 6:00 we will show the movie, which lasts 127 minutes. So if you'll be in town Friday evening and you're not participating in the Programming Competition, we'd love to have you at the showing. This event is free and open to the public.
You can begin registering a team for the next competition right now. You will need to enter your school code and select a password. If you already have a password, login to our registration site to access or edit your information. The registration deadline is Friday February 2, 2018.
The Department of Computer Science at the College of Charleston will hold the 36th Annual High School Programming Competition on February 23, 2018, the evening before the Math Meet. Separate registration by Friday, January 19 is required. More details are posted at their web site
