Free Mentoring Opportunities
For the last time this calendar year, mentor groups will be
providing feedback to submitters in Problems of the Week over
the next two weeks:
- Pre-Algebra from November 17 through November 30
- Math Fundamentals from November 24 through December 7
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!
