The SJSU Math Dept. presents the Fall 2013

1^{st} prize $50

2^{nd} prize $30

3^{rd} prize
$20

Every
Monday Professor Jackson will post a problem. Copies of the problems (and
answers to the old problems) are available on the table in front of the Math
office, MH 308. Solutions should be submitted to the math office by Wednesday
of the following week at 12:00 pm. Answers will be posted by the Monday
after the problem is due. The students with the most points throughout
the semester will be eligible for the prizes above. It’s never too late
to enter since the point values of the problems will increase as the semester
progresses. This fall we will have two divisions, one for undergraduate
students (no prior baccalaureate degree), one for
graduate students. Winners will be announced on Wed. Dec. 11. We
will also submit the names of these winners to the Scholarship committee for
consideration when the Math Dept. scholarships are awarded. Interested
students are also encouraged to take this year’s Putnam
Exam (a nationwide problem solving competition) which will be given on Sat.
Dec. 7. See Professor Jackson (MH 316, phone: 924-5100, email: bradley.jackson@sjsu.edu) for
further details. The problems and solutions to the Problem of the Week
competition are also available online at
