M3 Math Majors Matter ----------------------------------


Each month we will run a prize contest. The rules are simple:

  1. You must be an undergraduate math major to enter.
  2. The winner is the first person to provide the correct answer to the contest. If there are multiple parts, all parts must be correct.
  3. Entries can be made only by responding on this web page.
The status of the contest will be reported (on this page) each Friday until a winner surfaces. Multiple entries are allowed, but no more than one per week.

SUDOKU puzzles have become very popular recently. The rules are simple, just enter the digits 1 - 9 in each cell of the 9 × 9 grid so that each digit appears just once in each row, once in each column and once in each of the 3 × 3 subsquares.

Complete and submit your solution to this SUDOKU puzzle. Submit your entry to Bill Cherowitzo's mailbox in the Math Department office. Please put your name and the time of submission on your entry. The first correct entry received will win. (Print out this page to get a copy of the puzzle to submit.)
