The Qualifying Quiz

In your Mathcamp application, you will need to include your solutions to this year's Qualifying Quiz: a set of challenging and intriguing problems, and the centerpiece of the application.

When students apply to Mathcamp, we want to get them immediately hooked on cool problems that make you think about math in a new way. We also want our Admissions Committee to get to know candidates not based on test scores, but on reading their mathematical writing. So each year, we write our own entrance exam: the Qualifying Quiz.

Visit the Qualifying Quiz section of our website for the instructions, this year's questions, and lots more.

We hope you enjoy the Quiz problems!
