The Fine Print

Each month, Drs. Poplin and Shoenthal will choose a problem of the month.

The general rules are:

  • Submissions must be dated; only the last submission will be graded.
  • Submissions must include a complete mathematical justification along with the answer.
  • Submissions must represent your own work.
  • Submissions may only be made by individuals or groups of two.
  • Submissions for each problem are due before 5 p.m. on a specified day of the month the problem appears.
  • Submissions should be given to Dr. Poplin (Ruffner 335) or Dr. Shoenthal (Ruffner 326).

The Longwood student with the highest number of correct solutions during the 2014-15 academic year will win a prize.  A runner-up will also win a prize.

We will not post solutions to unsolved problems. However, if you would like to come in to the office after the due date to discuss a problem, we'd be happy to hear from you. Another note: correct solutions submitted by Longwood Math/CS faculty are not included in the solver's list.
