The competition consists of six challenging problems and has a time limit of four hours. The problems range from “mind-benders” that require little mathematical skill to problems that require the knowledge of geometry, trigonometry and beginning calculus. No calculators or cellphones are permitted for this competition. Participants meet faculty and students during lunch and actively participate in the problems solution session.
