The Bennett contest exam is a competition held at The University of Texas Mathematics Department at the end of every regular semester. Participation is limited to UT students who are finishing the Calculus sequence that semester. The questions are based on the topics covered in the Calculus courses, but require more than the usual amount of persistence and cleverness. There are cash prizes for the top scorers.

We have recently held Bennett competitions in Linear Algebra and in Differential Equations as well, and hope to make each of these an annual event

UT students interested in taking the Putnam exam in December should check out the department's Putnam page . This is an extremely difficult exam in which the problems typically require an understanding of core undergraduate-level mathematics such as Real Analysis and Abstract Algebra. We hold weekly prep sessions every Fall.


I serve as a faculty advisor in the Math, Physics, and Astronomy Advising Center (MPAA). Please make appointments through them if you would like to meet me to discuss becoming a math major, the role of various courses in the mathematics program, or how the study of mathematics can fit in with your life plan.

I am not directly involved with these but recommend them to students who want some mathematical opportunities outside the classroom:


I have the good fortune to be involved with the recognition of stellar undergraduates, in some cases meaning they become recipients of scholarships, prizes, and awards.
