The College Mathematics Journal

Problems and Solutions

Submission Instructions

We urge you to participate actively both by submitting solutions and by proposing problems that are new, interesting, and challenging to students and teachers of college mathematics. To promote variety, the editors welcome problem proposals that span the entire undergraduate curriculum. All contributions should be written in a style appropriate for publication in the College Mathematics Journal.  We encourage electronic submissions of both problems and solutions as PDF files accompanied, when applicable, by TeX/LaTeX or other appropriate source files. Please use the appropriate form below to send us your Problem or Solution.

For proposal submissions, click on "Problem Proposal" below to access the submissions page.

For solution submissions, click on "Solution to Problem number x" which matches the appropriate 4-digit problem number.

Each problem featured in CMJ is assigned a 4-digit number and the solutions are numbered according to the problem.
