Welcome to the home of the CUNY Math Challenge! Sponsored by the Office of Academic Affairs and the CUNY Institute for Software Design and Development (CISDD) and supported by the Office of the Chancellor, the CUNY Math Challenge seeks to identify and reward CUNY's best math talent. Regardless of your major, if you are a matriculated CUNY undergraduate student and have a predilection for quantitative thinking and mathematics, the CUNY Math Challenge is for you!
Here's how it works. The challenge is made up of four rounds, the first three of which take place online and consist of six problems each. A new online round opens every other week beginning Monday, March 7, 2011. Participants have two weeks to submit their answers in each online round, accumulating points along the way. Problems in each round are of varying levels of difficulty.
Top students after the first three rounds will be invited to the final round, an in-person exam to be administered on Sunday, May 1, 2011. Approximately thirty qualifying students will compete in the final round for more than a dozen cash prizes ranging from $500 up to the grand prize of $2,500. Winners will be publicly recognized at an event with Chancellor Goldstein in early May.
So are you up for the challenge?! If so, your first step is to register.
