MATH 3903 – Spring 2018

Methods of Problem Solving


In this course we will practice a variety of practical and theoretical techniques for mathematical problem-solving, with a focus on preparing solutions for submission to collegiate mathematics journals. Topics may include all areas of undergraduate mathematics! See the Syllabus for more information. Note that MATH 3903 is regularly held every Fall semester in conjunction with the Problem-Solving Seminar, which is intended for students who are interested in undergraduate Mathematics Competitions at LSU.


(Updated 2019). The remainder of this page contains a brief summary of the successfully solved problems submitted by LSU students.


Solutions submitted by MATH 3903 Students:


The following mathematics journals regularly feature Problem sections, which are a great way to challenge (and improve!) your understanding of more standard classroom material. Note that access to the journals may require logging in through LSU Libraries.
