Qualifying Quiz Solutions

Curious about the solutions to the Qualifying Quiz, or looking for feedback on your own Quiz solutions? By popular demand, we've created system for discussing the Quiz problems: an Art of Problem Solving "Math Jam" devoted to the Qualifying Quiz. The Jam is an online, interactive classroom, facilitated by a Mathcamp instructor, to discuss the Quiz problems. In addition to presenting the solutions themselves, we talk about how you would come up with a solution and how to write up your solution so that all of the necessary pieces are in place. The event is a real-time discussion where participants help guide us through the problems and are able to ask questions throughout. There is also a transcript of each Jam, which we post here after the event.

The class is free and open to the public. To attend, you must have an account at Art of Problem Solving at www.artofproblemsolving.com. Follow their instructions for "Math Jams":
