North Dakota Mathematics Talent Search
The Department of Mathematics at NDSU hosts an annual North Dakota Mathematics Talent Search. The talent search aims to stimulate students through problem-solving, to identify high-school students in North Dakota and surrounding areas with a talent for solving mathematical problems, to reward these students and their teachers for their efforts, and to encourage these students to pursue a major in the mathematical sciences or engineering at NDSU.

Who may compete?
Interested students are strongly encouraged to send in solutions even if they only solve one problem in a set; finding a good solution to a problem is always an achievement. The problems do not require advanced mathematical knowledge -- just creativity and a feeling or taste for problem solving.
All students are welcome to send solutions. It is not necessary to have participated in ealier Rounds.
