Annual Calculus Competition

 

Each year the Department of Mathematics and Statistics sponsors a calculus competition, which is open to any undergraduate student at YSU or any high school student enrolled in an undergraduate class at YSU.  The first competition was held on February 10, 1990.  The competition is now a team competition with teams of no more than three students competing. (An individual may also compete as a team.) The winner of the competition receives a $120 cash prize.  Depending upon the number of teams, we may also award a prize of $90 for second place and $60 for third place.  The winner of the 2018 competition, held on April 5, was Samuel Delatore.  To see a list of past competition winners, click the following link.   Competition winners
