Problems from or inspired by mathematics competitions. Questions regarding mathematics competitions.
This tag is intended for:
- actual problems from mathematics competitions;
- inquiries about alternative proofs for a particular problem that is from a math contest;
- questions that have been explicitly inspired by a contest problem, including practice problems; and
- soft questions requesting advice on competing in contests or those inquiring into the general utility of such things in terms of encouraging the further pursuit of mathematics.
See here for a list of mathematics competitions from which you might ask questions.
Please note that Mathematics StackExchange has a policy on questions from current competitions. Questions from ongoing competitions will be locked and temporarily deleted until the end of the contest. Therefore it is usually a good idea to include information about a contest, such as a link to the contest webpage. This is particularly true if the contest is a recent one.
