Hard Problems, The Road to the World's Toughest Math Contest is a feature documentary about the gifted students who represented the United States in 2006 at the world's toughest math competition-the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO). It is the story of six American high school students who competed with 500 others from 90 countries in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The film shows the dedication and perseverance of these remarkably talented students, the rigorous preparation they undertake, their individuality, and the joy they get out of solving challenging problems. Above all, it captures the spirit of math competitions at the highest level.
As well as watching the 45 minute documentary, we will also discuss a few upcoming math competitions in which you could participate.
As usual, light snacks will be served in Mathematics Hall starting at 6:30 PM.
