Each fall, usually during the months of October and November, there is a weekly recreational Problem Solving Session.

This is intended to help students prepare for the Big E and Special K contests and for the Putnam competition.

At the sessions, students are given some mathematical problems to solve.

This year, the sessions will be on Monday from 5pm to 8pm, with the exception of Oct 21 which is from 5:30pm to 8:30pm.

Here are the problems, and some solutions.
