Over 80 countries participated this year, each sending up to six students under the age of 20 who have had no postsecondary-school education. This site records scores and supplies competitor information, and includes a photo gallery and a summary of IMO Facts. The 2001 competition problems are available on the Web at: http://imo.wolfram.com/problemset/ The file may be downloaded in Mathematica notebook and PDF formats. There is also a link to an archive of problems and solutions beginning with the first IMO Olympiad in 1959, by John Scholes: http://www.kalva.demon.co.uk/imo.html -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- MEGAPENNY PROJECT - Kokogiak Media http://www.kokogiak.com/megapenny/ What would a billion (or a trillion) pennies look like? Find out at the MegaPenny Project site, in pages listing data on one to one quintillion pennies. All the pages have tables at the bottom, and include: - the value of the pennies - the size of the pile - the weight of the pennies - the area of the pennies if laid flat All weights and measurements are U.S. standards, not metric.
