 Macalester College Problems of the Week

    Stan Wagon, a professor in the Mathematics and Computer Science Department at Macalester College, poses a mathematics problem to his students every week. The problems are meant to be accessible to first-year college students, so very little background is needed to understand or solve them. They are also sent out by electronic mail and an archive of some older Problems of the Week is also maintained at Macalester. The archives of the Macalester Problems of the Week are housed at the Math Forum.

    For more college-level problems and puzzles, see the Math Forum's page of Sites with Problems Administered by Others.

 Ask Dr. Math

    The Math Forum hosts a project called Ask Dr. Math. It provides students all over the world with a place to pose their questions about mathematics. Not only is this a great service to the students, but it is also a lot of fun for the 'doctors.'

    As this project has become more and more popular, the demand for doctors has also increased. If you know of any college students who would like to spend a little time answering fun and challenging math questions on the Internet, please let us know.

    For an idea of the kinds of answers we aim for, browse our Dr. Math archives:
