You are invited to participate in the problem of the week contest offered by the Mathematics Department.

Every Wednesday a problem will be posted and interested students will be given a week to work on the problem. All students registered at any UW-Platteville campus are eligible to participate, and the student with the best solution to each problem will be awarded a $10 Chamber of Commerce gift certificate.

The student with the best cumulative score from each semester will receive a monetary prize, and be honored at the annual Department of Mathematics Banquet.
