The Problem of the Week is a series of challenging problems
aimed at UH students to encourage mathematical thinking. Once
a week we will post problems for anyone to attempt to solve.
You are counted as a solver for the week if you can answer any
of the questions posted. You can submit questions by
either typing up your work or submitting a scan of written
work to uhmathproblem@gmail.com, by the due date listed.
($$) Not only will these
problems be fun to work on, but UH
undergraduate solvers who consistently submit correct
solutions may be eligible for prize money at the end of the
semester.
