Problem of The Week for Mathematics.

I just wanted to give a suggestion of adding the Problem of the Week FOR MATHEMATICS . I personally feel that it will be more popular than that of Physics. Though, it will consume time, but it sounds exciting . Please take this into consideration.... Can we know why the Problem of the Week was closed???

And in this, we could keep big prizes for the best solution submitted. Gabriel Singhal · 3 years, 9 months ago

Gavril, it's a nice idea to have a problem of the week for mathematics and Calvin sir can provide it to us if he isn't overburdened. Soham Dibyachintan · 3 years, 9 months ago

Also, we should be asked to submit a solution, otherwise here also some cheaters will succeed.... and those who solve the question and don't give the solution, some serious action should be taken towards them. Garvil Singhal · 3 years, 9 months ago

Hi all,

We will consider bringing back a problem of the week for mathematics. We will evaluate our workflow and see if we can implement it without sacrificing productivity on other expansions to the website. If we can we will do it. We will let you know if our plans to bring back problem of the week become more concrete. Peter Taylor Staff · 3 years, 9 months ago

If the mods won't do it, we can do it (w/o pts) in a discussion, maybe? Matthew Lipman · 3 years, 9 months ago

Are you suggesting this instead of physics? If it's that, then my answer is a big NO. (Otherwise I say: great idea!) Josep Burgaya Pujols · 3 years, 9 months ago

@Josep Burgaya Pujols I just want a Problem of the week for Mathematics and i don't think they'll bring it back for Physics as there must be some valid reason, why they closed it. Garvil Singhal · 3 years, 9 months ago

@Garvil Singhal Ohhh, I didn't know there was a physics "problem of the week". Now I understand what you say. You've my support! Josep Burgaya Pujols · 3 years, 9 months ago

@Garvil Singhal I placed the same query before the staff in a thread..................they said that it was not attracting much attention.....so they removed it. Edward Elric · 3 years, 9 months ago

@Edward Elric They can't do like this. If a discussion has more than 20 votes , it is something... Garvil Singhal · 3 years, 9 months ago

And it should be an open problem Rushikesh Jogdand · 3 years, 9 months ago

@Rushikesh Jogdand So that when you solve the problem Brilliant won't need to award you, Clay Mathematical Institute will do that for them? Abhishek De · 3 years, 9 months ago

@Abhishek De Are awards greater than the skill of solving.(I didn't think they are) Rushikesh Jogdand · 3 years, 9 months ago

@Rushikesh Jogdand Oh my! Don't you understand any sarcasm? It was a rhetorical answer to your foolish comment that the problem of the week should be an open problem. But I now think you don't understand the meaning of open problem, so I'll make everything clear for you.

An open problem is a problem that is real tough and no one knows their solution. Even the big daddies of mathematics are stumped by it. There are monetary prizes reserved for some famous open problems by Clay Mathematical Institute. So, I said such a thing.

Good Day,

@Abhishek De Hey,did u get dat 4rm Manorama Yearbook as well? I googled for the problems after reading abt them.Now I'd definitely try to solve them out :)))) Edward Elric · 3 years, 9 months ago
