Project Euler

I found a website called Project Euler that gives maths related programming challenges.

It reminded me of a weekly competition we had in my high school. Every week a new maths/logic puzzle was posted all over the school and there was a £5 prize if you solved it. This eventually stopped when my best friend Duffy and I started making a fortune from it (mostly him). It was quite sad when the puzzles stopped, becuase they were quite interesting and Year 7 wasn’t exactly challenging. We didn’t even do it for the money (although that was a bonus), I just enjoy solving problems in a logical way and I think more schools should do these challenges.

Still I love maths challenges so I’m definitely going to give some of these a go.
