Mathematics of the Season
Given the time of year (and the recent abrupt reminder), it seems only appropriate that we include a few topics on the mathematics involved in this time of year. So, a few links for your reading enjoyment!
- The Wondrous Mathematics of Winter (courtesy of The New Yorker magazine)
- The Mathematics of Christmas (for you non-believers)
- A Mathematical Look at Snow and Avalanches
- Historic Thanksgiving-Hanukkah Overlap Leads to Math and Merchandise
Oh, and just because, who doesn't like Star Trek,
Above all, we hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable holiday season!

CSM Putnam Exam Team Scores High Marks!
Congratulations to Eric Jones, Nathan Neri, Kyle Geyser, Dylan Denning, Christian Parkinson, and Joshua Hoffman (not pictured).
Our official Mines Putnam exam team (consisting of 3 of the students listed above) achieved a combined score of 31 giving Mines a ranking of 97 out of the 402 participating universities. This score places CSM in the top 25% of schools competing in the exam. Also, 5 of the 6 students earned a score of 10 or above. In case you are not familiar with the Putnam Examination, the median score is usually 1 or 2, so this represents a nice achievement!
