Free Mentoring Opportunities
Mentor groups will be providing feedback to submitters in Problems of the Week over the next several weeks:
- Math Fundamentals from September 15 through October 26
- Pre-Algebra from October 6 through November 2
- Geometry from October 20 through November 2
Please have your students submit solutions. If they receive replies from a mentor, we hope you'll encourage them to revise. Not only will your students learn more, but the mentors will learn as well!
