Problem of the Week

During the Fall and Spring semesters of each year, the Mathematics Department hosts a Problem of the Week. New

Problems will (normally) appear on a Monday morning. Solutions are due by 12:00 noon the following Monday.

Undergraduate students may submit solutions in the "drop-envelopement" on the bulletin board outside of 390

Carver, or electronically to Elgin Johnston at ehjohnst@iastate.edu. Solutions must include all supporting work.

Each year, the three top solvers will be recognized and awarded a book at the Math Department Awards ceremony in late April.
