Advent Calendar 2015 Introduction

Following the fun that was hopefully had from last year's Advent Calendar I am making another one this year!

If you are unsure of what an Advent Calendar is here is a short explanation; to celebrate Christmas many shops sell Advent Calendars. For every day of December up to Christmas these calendars have a small treat which is normally a piece of chocolate.

But of course, why not have a math problem instead? That is exactly what I have decided to do. The problems will be of varying difficulty and like last year I will try to post the problems on the previous day to account for the time zone difference.

Please have fun and I hope you enjoy solving the problems!

Here is a link to the set.

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.
