March 2014 Problems

Due by noon on April 4th to Professor Abrams.

Congratulations to past problem solvers:

  • Onye Ekenta
Rules: You must work alone, or with a single partner. You may not use any external sources like the internet, mathematical software (e.g. Maple), etc., with the exception of books. You may use physical books that exist on paper.  Submit solutions either in person or electronically to Prof. Aaron Abrams before the deadline. Explain all your reasoning as clearly as possible.


Prizes: A prize of (your choice!) either a dollar or a donut (mmm . . . Pure Eats) will be awarded to the first person (or pair) who submits a complete and correct solution to each problem.  A prize will also be awarded to the first first-year student(s) who submit(s) a complete and correct solution to each problem.  Note: At the end of the year, a larger prize will be awarded to the person who has solved the most problems during the course of the year. This prize will probably be a math book of some kind.
