Problem Solving for Competitive Math

Estimated Time: 1 h

Course Level: Advanced


Elite STEM programs get more competitive every year, and the difficulty of the math problems increases. Students can use Wolfram Language functions to understand the problems and explore solutions. In this video, learn about the math principles used to solve example problems as well as the tools and functions available in Wolfram Language. Explore sample problems from the American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME), Program in Mathematics for Young Scientists (PROMYS) and Stanford University Mathematics Camp (SUMaC) programs.

Featured Products & Technologies: Wolfram Language (available in Mathematica and Wolfram|One)
