PUMaC in < 24 Hours!

19 Nov

Wow, crazy. PUMaC is set to begin in under 24 hours! As I’ve mentioned before, PUMaC is Princeton University’s annual mathematics competition intended for high-schoolers (and brilliant middle-schoolers) around the country and world. It’s been an exciting journey thus far and I’ve had a great time working with the director and other core PUMaC staff to bring it all together. I haven’t seen the problems yet, but I’ve taken a peek at the Power Round test (already handed out to teams last Saturday) and it looks pretty interesting! The topic this year is in the land of graph theory: specifically, minor graphs.

According to the latest numbers, we’re expected 500+ middle-/high-school students on campus tomorrow! It’s pretty exciting recalling how much I looked forward to PUMaC, HMMT, and others when I was in high school. Regardless of how fun it is to organize everything, nothing beats actually competing. 🙂 I hope everyone has a great time tomorrow and we see some fierce competition for the top spots!
