Discrete Math Problem of the Week (PoW)
Library Home || Full Table of Contents || Library Help
|Discrete math problems from a variety of sources, including textbooks, math contests, NCTM books, and puzzle books, and real-life situations, designed to reflect different levels of difficulty. From 1999 until 2002, this service challenged students with non-routine problems and encouraged them to put their solutions into words. In conjunction with its mentoring companion project, solutions submitted from students for the Discrete Math Problem of the Week were answered by mentors, and students had an opportunity to correspond with their mentor. Different types of problems were used to reach a diverse group of discrete math students.|
