Nineteen Haverford students took either Part A or Part B of the Putnam Exam last Saturday. Seventeen took both parts. This year, problem A1 really was easy, so everyone got at least one problem! (Take a peek; the problems are posted on a bulletin board outside my office.)
Thanks to Bill Huber for encouraging students to make problem-solving part of their recreational life at Haverford, to Jeff for giving an extension on a take-home to students in Math 215 who took the Putnam, and to Putnam fellow Marshall Buck who talked with two group of students (totaling 7 individuals) who travelled to NJ to practice with him.

Students: discuss the problems and their solutions by responding to this post! You can also post your solutions to the bulletin board outside Lynne’s office, KINSC H212.
