Nov. 16 Math Mystery Year Puzzle: Reserve Banks Open for Business

November 16 of the Mystery Year marks the date when the 12 regional Reserve Banks opened for business.

The clues provide connections to three major goals of the Federal Reserve: maximum employment, stable prices, and moderate long-term interest rates. This puzzle is great for middle school or high school students to use any time.
