Dr. Zuming Feng, coach of the US IMO team and author of multiple books on Olympiad problem solving, shared valuable techniques for solving the Diophantine Equations which occur frequently in problem solving contests.

The students worked through a series of increasingly difficult problems and Dr. Feng guided them through ways to leverage their number sense and algebra to limit the number of possible solutions saving them invaluable time in a contest situation.

If you missed Dr. Feng this weekend we are happy to say that he will be returning to Metroplex Math Circle on March 7th.   The video below shows Dr. Feng discussing solutions to the 2006 International Mathematics Olympiad.
