Math Games

"Math Games" is Wellesley's in-house math competition where each Fall teams of students solve fun and challenging problems in a quest for glory, chocolate, and other prizes.

Sample Question: How many different ways can you complete the square below so that each color appears exactly once in each row and in each column? (You do not have to list all the different ways -- just say how many there are. )

The Math Games coordinator sends out an email announcing this event in the fall of each year, so you should hear about this if you are signed up for the math departments email list.  If you aren't on our email list but have questions about Math Games, contact Melanie Chamberlin to find out which faculty member is coordinating the event this year.

Upcoming Events

The fall semester starts very soon!  We'll be updating this column with departmental events once the semester gets underway.
