The Putnam is Saturday in two parts, 9-12, then 2-5. Show up to E1 102
at 8:50am.

My recommendation is that you come to the beginning of the morning
session, pick one or two problems you like, and give it a shot.  You
can leave early if you're not getting anywhere, and you only have to
come back at 2pm if you want to.


The problems are lovely (see
http://math.scu.edu/putnam/gradecJan.html), and if you get just a few
right, it might well be enough to get published in the national Top
500 list!

Hope to see you there.
