Handouts

Obscure Geometry Theorems. Discusses techniques in computational geometry through the proofs of some lesser-known theorems.

Constructions. An experimental problem set on geometry problems that become easier after constructing something.

Hall’s Marriage Theorem. Discusses example problems, followed by a problem set. Knowledge on graph theory assumed.

Pascal’s Theorem. Briskly sets up the projective plane and discusses example problems, followed by a problem set.

Crossing Numbers. No prerequisites, but knowledge of graph theory is useful, and so is familiarity with reading proofs. Goes from a light overview to the crossing number inequality.

Non-Standard MMC Problems. Practice questions for the oral rounds, compiled for use of our math team. Has actual MMC questions and questions similar in format, mostly from NIMO.
