The Fourth Annual Integration Bee

In March 2021, the UConn graduate student chapter of the AMS held its Fourth Annual Integration Bee–the first virtual bee in order to comply with COVID-19 safety procedures. Undergraduates of varying levels of the mathematical background came together to test their knowledge of math. Chapter members created a packet of problems ranging in difficulty level, from word problems requiring only basic algebra to multivariable integrals and topology, algebra, and analysis proofs. Students were given two weeks to complete as many problems as possible and submit their work. Chapter officers graded the packets and awarded 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place based on the accuracy of answers. Ties were broken by the time at which the participants submitted the packet.

Junior Benjamin Amar won second place and junior Joseph Axiak won first place. The top finishers were awarded Amazon gift cards.
