Part II - 5 problems, 2 hours.

The top three overall scorers** will be offered a scholarship for full tuition and expenses if and when they enroll at the University of Maryland (for non-seniors, this might be a few years from now). (**More fine print: For this year's contest, to receive a scholarship, a student must be a US citizen, national, or permanent resident.)

In addition to a sound knowledge of high school mathematics (up to, but not including, calculus), both parts will require a fair amount of mathematical insight and ingenuity.
