Problem Contest

Every year at SUnMaRC, there is a student Problem Contest that runs concurrently with the conference. Below are the details concerning this year’s contest.


We were truly impressed with the number of students that participated in this year’s Problem Contest. The list of problems for both sessions can be found here.

The top 3 individual problem solvers were:

  1. Courtney Schmitt from Northern Arizona University (15 points)
  2. Jeff Covington from Northern Arizona University (14 points)
  3. Sean McGee from Coconino Community College (8 points)

To compute the team awards, we divided the total number of points scored for a school by the number of distinct individuals from that school that solved at least one problem correctly. The top 3 teams were:

  1. Northern Arizona University
  2. University of Arizona
  3. Mesa Community College

Detailed information about who got credit for which problems is available here.
