Math Team’s Performance Adds Up

A team from UT Dallas placed in the top five percent of competing universities from the U.S. and Canada in the recent William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition. Nine students competed from the University. Student teams consist of three members selected from the group of students who compete from each university. The team placed 28 out of 546 teams at the prestigious event.

“It is the third time in the last four years that our team placed among the top 30 universities in North America, said Dr. Titu Andreescu, associate professor of mathematics education. “Our hard work paid off, and we are very proud of our students’ achievement.” Andreescu coached the UT Dallas Putnam team. The exam was coordinated by Dr. Paul Stanford, senior lecturer in mathematical sciences. The top-ranked schools included MIT, Harvard and CALTECH.
