K.N. Rao Competition
Each year the NDSU Department of Mathematics sponsors a Mathematics competition in honor of our colleague, K. N. Rao.
The competition is a contest of individual mathematical knowledge and expertise as measured by performance on a series of written problems. The expectation of preparation for this contest is calculus and an introductory course in linear algebra.
There will be prizes for the top competitors. The top prize winner will have their name engraved in the K. N. Rao trophy. The top five competitors will be awarded gift certificates for the NDSU Varsity Mart. The top three competitors will receive scholarships that can be utilized at NDSU.
The contest is open to undergraduates that are registered at any of the Tri-College institutions (Concordia, MSUM, and NDSU).
