Skidmore College Problem Group

General Information

The Skidmore College Problem Group is a group of students who meet regularly to work on problems posed in various undergraduate mathematics journals. Faculty participants are also welcome. Solutions to problems are then submitted to the editors (either by individuals within the group or by the group as a whole). Solutions are acknowledged in subsequent issues of these journals. The journals publish a solution to each problem from among the correct submissions.

Some History


The Relevant Journals

Currently, the Mathematics & Computer Science Dept. subscribes to the following journals, all of which contain sections devoted to posed problems. The following links will take you to information about the journal from the publishers:

The American Mathematical Monthly Mathematics Magazine The College Mathematics Journal
Crux Mathematicorum The Pi Mu Epsilon Journal Math Horizons

In addition, we may entertain problems posed in sources to which the dept. does not currently subscribe, such as the Journal of Undergraduate Mathematics, the The New York State Mathematics Teachers Journal, or the Fibonacci Quarterly.
