Syllabus: This is Putnam Workshop. Putnam Exam is a Mathematical Olympiad for college students. The class will function as a seminar pursuing two goals. One is to give a crash course on basic subjects of upper-division math curriculum: first of all - linear algebra, as well as some topics in algebra, geometry and analysis. The other one is raising student's confidence in solving challenging problems. For practicing in this area, we plan to use the material of math olympiads of high-school level (rather than past Putnam Exams - which are available online anyway). There will be no final exam, but students are expected to take part in the mock- and then real Putnam Exam of this year. Grading in the course will be based not on the results of these 'exams', but on the consitency in submitting homework and participating in classroom discussions.
