In April of each year, the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science sponsors the Andalafte Mathematical Competition. This is a 2-hour exam consisting of five challenging problems. The competition is open to UMSL undergraduates, regardless of major. Students who have a good understanding of undergraduate mathematics of at least the level of math 1900 (Calculus II) can be successful. There are prizes available for first, second and third place finishers. First prize is as much as $500, second prize as much as $350 and third prize as much as $250. The purpose of this competition is to encourage undergraduates to strive for excellence in their studies. Application forms are available on-line or are available in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science.
