              WORLD!OF NUMBERS - Patrick De Geest

           http://www.worldofnumbers.com/index.html

  World!of Numbers, a Web site by Patrick De Geest, is about
  recreational mathematics, with palindromes as the main topic.
  Patrick explains that he opted for palindromes "...not
  because of my length (181 cm), my average weight (77 kg) or
  my house number (141) but because I was attracted by their
  overall symmetry and the fact that it was a novel and thus
  insufficiently studied subject."

                     PROBLEM CORNER - Les Reid
               Southwest Missouri State University

               http://math.smsu.edu/~les/POTW.html

  Three levels of problems are updated monthly, then archived
  along with solutions.

    - High School: Problems are directed primarily towards high
        school students, although everyone is welcome to
        participate.

    - Advanced: Problems are written assuming some
        college-level mathematics, typically calculus, but
        occasionally higher-level courses.

    - Challenge: Knowledge of college-level mathematics is not
        assumed, but the problems posed tend to be of a more
        challenging nature. Some of the problems in the archives
        are marked as not yet solved.

                             \|/

          TWO PROGRAMMING CONTESTS: ATTACKING QUEENS

         http://members.aol.com/DrMWEcker/Contest.html

  These contests were inspired by the Problem Corner's
  "Attacking Hyperqueens" problem.
