Training Workout #6 – Tuesday, Sept 18, 2018
  • Solve the 8 problem set I gave you in class. As usual, you may keep the problems and should hand in your answers on the official Answer Form linked to below.  If you want to take it under contest conditions, give youself 40 minutes. Do not use a calculator or computer. Be sure to log your efforts in the training log.
  • USAMTS Round One. Continue working on Round 1 Problems that you haven’t solved. Hand in a draft of your attempted solution to at least one of the problems #2-5 (not #1). It can be either handwritten or typed in LaTeX. Be sure to log your efforts in the training log.
  • Read Over Sections 2.1-2.3 In Zeitz. You don’t need to work all of the examples but familiarize yourself with the material.
