"Every child learning multiplication must experience the Collatz Conjecture (1937). If they don't - it's a sin."
Unsolved K-12 was a conference that brought together mathematicians and educators to select 13 unsolved problems of mathematics - one for each grade K-12. The objective is to get one quality problem in front of every child for 45 minutes each year.
The decision about whether the problems should each have a $1,000,000 reward (the prize to be split between the person who solves the problem and their most inspirational K-12 teacher) has been put on hold until 6 months after lesson plans have been developed. It is the expectation of some at the conference that the unsolved problems will spread naturally through social media and that the $1,000,000 rewards are therefore not needed.
