Do You Have a Problem?

Posted on November 8th, 2017 by

For the last two and a half years the MCS department has been offering students the opportunity to participate in problem solving sessions. Sessions are held once a week.  Problems vary in subject matter and difficulty.  Students from  multiple diciplins get together for an hour in the evening, eat pizza, discuss strategies to solve the presented problems, and have a good time.

Here is a sample problem from this last week.

Can you number the vertices of a cube with the numbers 1 through 8
(using each number exactly once) so that the sum of the two numbers on
an edge is different for every edge?

Leave your answer in the comments below if you think you have the solution.
