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, Math 105, Math 151, Math 161, Math
162, Math 163, Math 175, Math 177, Math 287, Math 185, Math 241, Math 277 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.
