If you are looking for programming problems to challenge yourself or to give to your students, then Project Euler is one good place to start.  According to the website, “Project Euler exists to encourage, challenge, and develop the skills and enjoyment of anyone with an interest in the fascinating world of mathematics.” True indeed, the site has collected more than 400 programming problems in mathematics.

Project Euler Programming Problems

Many of the problems are accessible even to Grade 8 students  but some are a bit challenging.  Non-computer science majors and non-mathematics majors who want to keep their “problem solving and mathematics on the edge” are also encouraged to try. To give you an idea of the difficulty of the problems, one problem is shown above.
