For generations Jews have excelled in mathematics. Their

mathematical knowledge and creativity has greatly benefited

mankind, been a source of pride for the Jewish people and has

resulted in a*kiddush hashem* throughout the world. See the attached

links for information on Jews in Mathematics in general and the

Ralbag in particular. Unfortunately the study of mathematics has

declined both in the Jewish and the secular arenas, though the world

has become more complex and knowledge of mathematics has

become more critical.

To stimulate interest in the study of mathematics amongst yeshiva

high school students, the Lander College for Men is organizing a

mathematics contest with valuable prizes for the contest winners.

The contest is designed to broaden and enrich students' knowledge

of mathematics and to enhance their mathematical creativity. It is

open to all full-time yeshiva high school students in the USA and

Canada, and will provide a first prize of $1,000. Prizes will be

awarded based upon an examination covering mathematical material

related to the normal high school mathematics curriculum. Practice

material will be available periodically on the internet, and will consist

of challenging and interesting problems and their solutions.

The subject for this year’s Jacob Goldfinger Memorial Mathematics

prize contest is Probability. The contest examination is to be based

on the probability videos available at http://www.khanacademy.

org/math/probability. You may prepare yourself for the contest by

following the contest schedule (shown on the second tab on the right

of this page). The schedule contains 12 learning modules. Each

learning module will contain several short videos and approximately 3

practice problems and their solutions. For best results participants

are strongly encouraged to complete the modules in accordance with

the contest schedule.

The contest prizes will be awarded based on the April 21, 2013

contest examination that will evaluate your probability problem solving

skills.
