Each year the Math Department offers an undergraduate problem solving exam (previously known as the Prize Exams) in which students may compete for Honor* and Fortune**. The exam is open to all Rutgers New Brunswick undergraduates.
Students are not expected to solve all problems. They will only be judged against students of a similar (academic) age.
Any interested student may arrive to the exam any time between 9:30 and 12:00, and will have up to two hours to work on the exam. (The competition will end at 2 pm.) No advanced registration is required; students should simply show up in the examination room with their picture ID. No calculators, computers, or any communication devices will be allowed.
**Fortune: Small monetary prizes will be given for outstanding performances.
