Monthly Mathematics Challenge

The UL Lafayette mathematics department Monthly Mathematics Challenge provides an opportunity to engage in problem solving. Each month we will post a set of problems. You will have at least one month to tackle the problems and submit your solutions. We will include problems at various levels of difficulty. We hope that you will find these problems sufficiently challenging to pique your interest.

Solutions (to one or all of the problems) can be emailed to or handed in to Calvin Berry (cberry@louisiana.edu) or Leonel Robert (lrobert@louisiana.edu). Correct solutions will be acknowledged on this web page.
