Southeastern > Academics > Colleges and Departments > Mathematics > Student Success > Problem of the Month

Every month the mathematics department hosts an open competition for any students
at Southeastern. The problems are divided into two categories to give beginning level
mathematics students a chance to win. The submissions are taken and the correct solutions
are all put into a drawing for a great prize.

The first problem is for students taking Math 92, 155, 161, 162, 163, 167, 168, 185,
241, 267 or their equivalent. Only students who have not taken any mathematics classes
beyond this list are eligible to compete for the first problem. Of course, advanced
students are more than welcome to try their hand at it to see if they still "have
their stuff".

The second problem is open to all students but is designed for students who have
taken Math 200 or later classes.

Directions for submissions are each student should write out a complete solution
showing all work and being as legible as possible. You must put your name and a valid
Southeastern email address on your submission. (So, that we can get your prize!) Then
the submissions are put into a box in the Mathematics Office, room 308 Fayard Hall
by 4:00 p.m. on the due day.

Problems will continue to come out each month and new due dates will be posted for
each competition.
