The admissions exam consists of challenging problems to be completed by applicants on their own time. The only time restriction is the application deadline.
Solve as many of the problems as you can. Report partial progress toward a solution, in the event you are unable to solve a problem completely.
Provide detailed explanations with all of your answers; numerical answers or formulas with no explanation will not assist your candidacy.
You do not need to provide correct answers to every problem in order to be admitted to SUMaC. Your work on these problems, together with your academic records, teacher recommendations, and your written responses, are all used to evaluate your application along with the group of students applying to SUMaC this year.
None of these problems require a calculator or computer, and you are encouraged not to use computational tools or computer programs for your solutions.
Your solutions and notes may be submitted in a typed document, or you may submit a handwritten document in pencil or pen, as long as the document you upload is clearly legible for our Admissions Committee’s review.
Comments from Customer
I said you need to solve the questions and provide explanations on a Microsoft Excel but you can ignore that. I pressed the wrong one. Anywhere you can record the processes are fine. Microsoft word, google doc, etc. Whatever you prefer the most
