Intersectional College Mathematics Competition: Friday afternoon.

The Intersectional College Math Competition (historically the Indiana College Math Competition) is an annual "friendly" problem-solving competition that has been sponsored by the Indiana MAA Sectional since 1966.  Open to all attending undergraduates, students collaborate in teams of three or less to solve a set of mathematical problems during a two-hour block on Friday afternoon.  Although still challenging, the competition's "friendly" nature derives from the fact that its problems are designed to be more representative of the undergraduate mathematics curriculum than other competitions such as the Putnam Exam.  For representative problems, the 2017 exam may be found HERE.  Rules for participants may be found HERE.  There is a $30 administrative fee per team (including T-shirts for each member), no matter the number of students per team.

For more information on the invited talks and the rest of the program, see the Preliminary Program page for the current draft of the schedule and abstracts.
