Stanford participates in the Putnam Competition, an annual math contest for college students, each December.  Students can choose to receive credit for participating by enrolling in the 1-unit course Math 193, Polya Problem Solving Seminar, in Autumn quarter; however, enrollment is not required to participate. If you are interested in participating or want to learn more, be sure to attend the first class. See ExploreCourses for course schedule information.

Along with awards given by the Putnam Competition, the Polya seminar is generously supported by Two Sigma Investments. Their support allows us to give out cash prizes for the many students who performed excellently in the Putnam Competition: The Two Sigma Prize, and The Two Sigma/Mary Sunseri Award for outstanding performance by women.
