Leo Schneider Student Team Competition

The Ohio Section of the MAA hosts a student math competition in honor of Leo Schneider at each spring meeting (usually late March or early April).  Groups of three students collaborate to solve ten challenging math problems. The top three teams are award cash prizes and the admiration of their peers!  The CSU Math Club arranges for teams to attend this annual regional mathematics competition, including travel and lodging.   All undergraduate students at CSU are eligible to participate. (High school students enrolled at CSU may also participate.)  Problems are drawn from the standard mathematics undergraduate curriculum and will vary in difficulty, however some of the problems are always accessible to sophomore level mathematics students (calculus, linear algebra, etc.).
