Math Day 2012

Women dominated this year's UNL Math Day with 1st, 2nd, and 4th place overall in the scholarship competition. Marika Svolos of Omaha Central was the 1st place winner.

1,389 students from 99 Nebraska high schools participated in the 23rd annual UNL Math Day on Thursday, November 15 on the UNL campus. This event is designed to spark high school students' interest in math, to encourage them to pursue a career in mathematics or the mathematical sciences, and to recognize outstanding mathematical ability.

This all day event consist of the PROBE I and PROBE II individual competitions and the fast-paced Math Bowl double elimination team competition. Students start with the multiple choice, preliminary exam called PROBE I (Problems Requiring Original and Brilliant Effort). The top three females and males receive awards. The top five, four, or three scores (depending on class) from each school determine the PROBE I Team score. The top 50 students move on to take an essay exam called PROBE II. The top ten on PROBE II are awarded a total of $34,000 in four-year scholarships to UNL. These scholarships are generously supported by the Dean H. and Floreen G.

Math Day 2011

The 22nd Annual UNL Math Day was held on Thursday, November 17, at the Nebraska Union on UNL City Campus. Opening ceremonies began at 8 a.m. in the Lied Center for the Performing Arts with the welcome address by Associate Vice Chancellor Amy Goodburn. Math Day 1990 hosted 562 students from 68 Nebraska high schools. This year, Math Day hosted 1,421 students from 104 Nebraska high schools. In the afternoon awards ceremony, Professor John Meakin, Chair of the Mathematics Department, presented UNL scholarships totaling $34,000 to the top 10 students in the PROBE II competition.

The purpose of Math Day is to promote the mathematical sciences and UNL. It consists of two individual and two team mathematics competitions, information about majors and departments, career information, and recreational mathematical activities. All students start with a multiple choice, preliminary exam called PROBE I (Problems Requiring Original and Brilliant Effort). The top three females and males receive awards. The top 50 students move on to take the now famous essay exam called PROBE II. The top 10 on PROBE II are awarded a total of $34,000 in 4-year scholarships to UNL. The scholarships are generously supported by the Dean H. and Floreen G. Eastman Memorial Fund for Mathematics, the Gallup Math Day Fund, the College of Engineering, and The Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs. The first team competition is determined by averaging the top scores from each school on PROBE I. The second is a double elimination tournament pitting three-member teams against each other (up to two alternates per team allowed). The team competitions are divided into smallest, small, medium, and large school categories with trophies given to the top two teams in each. All the questions assume two years high school algebra, trigonometry, and one year geometry. However the answers to PROBE II questions require the creativity and originality that we expect from only the very best students.

All students start with a multiple choice, preliminary exam called PROBE I (Problems Requiring Original and Brilliant Effort). The top 3 females and males receive awards. The top 50 students move on to take the now famous essay exam called PROBE II. The top 10 on PROBE II are awarded a total of $34,000 in 4-year scholarships to UNL. The scholarships are generously supported by the Dean H. and Floreen G. Eastman Memorial Fund for Mathematics, the College of Engineering and UNL. The first team competition is determined by averaging the top scores from each school on PROBE I. The second is a double elimination tournament pitting 3-member teams against each other (up to two alternates per team allowed). The team competitions are divided into smallest, small, medium and large school categories with trophies given to the top two teams in each. All the questions assume only two years high school algebra and one year geometry. However the answers to PROBE II questions require the creativity and originality that we expect from only the very best students.

Math Day 2000

The 11th Annual UNL Math Day was held on Thursday, November 9, 2000, at the UNL city campus Union. Opening ceremonies began at 8:00 a.m. in the Lied Center for Performing Arts with the Welcome Address by Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs James Griesen. Math Day 1990 hosted 562 students from 68 Nebraska high schools. This year Math Day hosted 1,312 students from 99 Nebraska schools. In the afternoon Award Ceremony, Chancellor Harvey Perlman handed out the awards for the PROBE I competition and Dr. Donald Clifton, Chairman of Gallup International Education and Reserach Center, awarded the $34,000 Gallup-sponsored UNL scholarships to the top 10 students in the PROBE II competition.

The purpose of Math Day is to promote the mathematical sciences and UNL. It consists of two individual and two team mathematics competitions, information about majors and departments, career information and recreational mathematical activities. All students start with a multiple choice, preliminary exam called PROBE I (Problems Requiring Original and Brilliant Effort). The top 50 students move on to take the now famous essay exam called PROBE II. The top 10 on PROBE II are awarded a total of $34,000 in 4-year scholarships to UNL. The scholarships are generously supported by the Gallup Organization. The first team competition is determined by averaging the top scores from each school on PROBE I. The second is a double elimination tournament pitting 3-member teams against each other. The team competitions are divided into smallest, small, medium and large school categories with trophies given to the top two teams in each. All the questions assume only two years high school algebra and one year geometry. However the answers to PROBE II questions require the creativity and originality that we expect from only the very best students.

Math Day 1994

The 5th Annual UNL Math Day was held on Thursday, November 17, 1994, at the UNL city campus Union. Opening ceremonies began at 8:00 a.m.

The purpose of Math Day is to promote the mathematical sciences and UNL. It consists of two individual and two team mathematics competitions, information about majors and departments, career information and recreational mathematical activities. All students start with a multiple choice, preliminary exam called PROBE I (Problems Requiring Original and Brilliant Effort). The top 50 students move on to take the now famous essay exam called PROBE II. The top 10 on PROBE II are awarded a total of $34,000 in 4-year scholarships to UNL. The scholarships are generously supported by the Gallup Organization. The first team competition is determined by averaging the top scores from each school on PROBE I. The second is a double elimination tournament pitting 3-member teams against each other. The team competitions are divided into smallest, small, medium and large school categories with trophies given to the top two teams in each. All the questions assume only two years high school algebra and one year geometry. However the answers to PROBE II questions require the creativity and originality that we expect from only the very best students.
