The article on MIT winning the Putnam math competition ["MIT Takes First Place At Putnam Math Test," March 19] had several innaccuracies. Several years for MIT students mentioned in the article were incorrect because of sophomore standing and should have been Daniel M. Kane '07, Timothy G. Abbott '07, Sean P. Markan '06, Pramook Khungurn '06, and Gary L. Sivek '06. David D. Shin '05 was listed with an incorrect middle initial. In a quote, Kane was referring to 18.S34, not 18.034, as a preparation class for the Putnam competition. Finally, it has been 23 years since MIT has won the competition, not 24.
