2017 Festival, 2019 Festival


MathPickle’s primary objective is to get 13 curricular unsolved problems into classrooms worldwide — one for each grade K-12. A conference in November 2013 established the 13 unsolved problems. To aid with the dissemination of these awesome problems, MathPickle is looking at setting up a $1,000,000 reward — the prize money to be split between the person who solves the problem and their most inspirational K-12 educator.
