# APSU Math Problem of the Week

Our Math Problem of the Week is meant to provide students a fun and mathematically stimulating problem to solve each week with prizes given out to one of our problems solvers. Any APSU student can submit a solution. You don't need to be a math major or even enrolled in a math class; only a mathematically curious mind is required.

- Submissions can be made in person to Dr. Brad Fox (MMCS 109) or electronically to foxb@apsu.edu
