Welcome to the Missouri State University Department of Mathematics' Problem Corner. There are three levels of problems: High School, Advanced, and Challenge. A brief description of each follows; click on the link to go to the corresponding page. There are also archives of past problems. Problems are updated monthly (approximately). Solutions will appear approximately two months after the problems have been posted (to give everyone plenty of time to respond).
HighSchool The problems on this page will be directed primarily towards high school students, although everyone is welcome to participate. Each month, the solution to the previous month's problem will be posted along with the names of those who have solved it.
Archives

Advanced This page will pose problems which assume some college-level mathematics, typically calculus, but occasionally higher-level courses. Solutions are solicited. Each month, the names of those solving the puzzle will be posted along with one of their solutions (assuming any are received).
Archives

Challenge This page does not presuppose a knowledge of calculus, but the problems posed tend to be of a more challenging nature. Solutions are solicited. Each month, the names of those solving the puzzle will be posted along with one of their solutions (assuming any are received).
