Missouri State University's
Five Interlocking Tetrahedra,
Peter T. Wang
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).
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.
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).
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
