Jane Street Estimathon® at MIT!

Tuesday, September 26
6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

6th Floor MIT Media Lab

The Estimathon® is a mind-bending mixture of math and trivia. In teams, you’ll attempt 13 Fermi problems
in 30 minutes, ranging from totally trivial to positively Putnamesque. Be prepared to come up with the best
set of confidence intervals! Sample problems include:

How many stop signs are in New York City?
How many babies were born in 1900?
How many Social Security Numbers are prime?

Register here by Sunday, September 24th at 11:59pm. All participants must register as individuals –
teams will be created at the event. We will confirm your participation by EOD on Monday, September
