CSU Math: Student Competitions
Math Club Biweekly Problems
The CSU Math Club sponsors a biweekly problem contest during the fall and spring semesters.
CSU Freshman-Sophomore Mathematics Competition
The CSU Freshman-Sophomore Mathematics Competition is an annual competition in April and is open to all regularly enrolled CSU undergraduate students who have completed at most one mathematics or statistics course numbered 300 or above. The background for the competition is basic algebra and geometry, very elementary number theory, and calculus; no upper-division coursework is necessary.
DataFest will introduce you to what is likely the richest, most complex dataset you’ve seen so far in your academic career. The dataset is provided by a real-life organization and is chosen to provide many avenues of discovery. Students at any stage of their data-science education will find something of interest and will have the opportunity to make an original finding. Students from any major are welcome.
Leo Schneider Student Team Competition
CSU Math Club sends teams of up to 3 students each to this annual regional mathematics competition at the Ohio MAA Spring Meeting. The meeting usually takes place at the end of March or the first half of April. All undergraduate students are eligible to participate. (High school students enrolled at CSU may also participate.) The Math Club organizes an overnight trip to the MAA Spring Meeting including travel and lodging.
