Mathematics Problem of the Week

Mathematics Problem of the WeekSolve the Problem Of the Week and you could be a KPU Mathematics Star and win a prize!

Do you enjoy puzzles and problems? Then you have come to the right place. Every week during the fall and spring semesters a Problem of the Week will be posted here, or you can have it emailed to you by signing up below.  Most problems just require a general mathematics background combined with critical thinking, so everybody has a chance to participate and even to win.

Problems will be posted on Mondays and will be due by noon the following Monday. However, the quality of your solution is more important than being the first to submit an answer. All correct answers are eligible to win, so long as they are submitted before the deadline.
