IMO 2014

The questions from IMO 2014 have been posted. Try your hand and see which questions you can do! I strongly encourage you to do Question 1 and Question 4.

The participants are out enjoying the various excursions, while their team leaders are fighting for points (aka coordination). Which country do you think will be top?

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

Off course India.

I've seen the partial scores and India hasn't done particularly well. I doubt if India will be in the top 50 this time.

EDIT: Well, India is 39th. Sigh, I expected at least Sagnik Saha to get a gold. :(
